Give Me 5 for Kids is Southern Cross Austereo’s national fundraiser which has been supporting and raising funds for local children’s hospital wards across regional Australia for the last 20 years. Beginning in the mid-'90s as a simple coin drive from the Central Coast region, this annual charity drive has since raised almost $20 million nationally, and benefited over 40 children’s hospital wards.
Each June, Mix106.3 and the Nine television network get behind the cause by holding local fundraising events. Kristen & Rod will be supporting Give Me 5 4 Kids in a big way this year! In 2016 they broadcast from the top of a cherry picker for a whole morning in the freezing cold and rain, what will they do in 2017? Make sure you are tuned into 106.3 all throughout June to find out!
Thanks to your help and generosity, we raised for $130,000 last year for Give Me 5 4 Kids, and this year we are hoping to raise even more! Every donation helps to raise more funds annually for our local children’s hospital wards, and make a real difference to the lives of sick local kids.
