Saving lives on and off the beach

14 February 2019

Lifeguards from Waverley, Randwick and Sutherland Shire Councils are putting their fitness to the test when they take on the 30km Lifeguard Challenge in support of Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. 

In a 'battle of the beaches', the lifeguards will be running, swimmng and rescue board paddling from Bondi to Cronulla on Sunday 17 March to raise lifesaving medical equipment. 

The team are aiming to raise $19,000 to help fund an EEG Monitor urgently needed by Hospital's Neurology Team. The monitor will assess seizures in children by detecting changes in brain wave patterns. It can also assist with diagnosing neurological conditions such as seizure disorders or epilepsy. 

Get involved! 

The Lifeguard Challenge kicks off at Bondi Beach at 6am on Sunday 17 March and will finish at Cronulla Beach. Cheer them on from special vantage points along the course or join the celebrations at the finish line! You can also help the Lifeguard's reach their $19,000 target by donating today. 

The Sydney Children's Hospitals Foundation raises funds for Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick , The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage, the Newborn and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS NSW) and Kids Research
