About sunSCHine

sunSCHine is serious about making a difference to the lives of sick children and over the last nine years, it has raised over $4 million to support the areas most in need at the Hospital, from Palliative Care to the Child Protection Unit.

Funds raised at the 10th annual event will help make an even bigger difference to the patients, their families and Hospital staff across Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network.
