What is Nine Telethon?

The Nine Telethon sees the community come together in support of Children’s Hospital Foundation as part of the only live televised fundraising event in Queensland.

Now in its eighth year, money raised from the Telethon helps the Foundation support sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, purchasing cutting-edge medical equipment, and providing vital patient and family support services at Queensland Children’s Hospital and paediatric facilities right across the state.

Since the first Nine Telethon in 2014, more than $80 million has been raised to support sick and injured kids. How amazing is that!

In 2022, Telethon will be broadcast on Saturday 23 April 2022, and will be jam-packed with entertainment, celebrity cameos, and some seriously extraordinary kids and their families.
There are a lot of kids and families going through tough times, and no times have been tougher than the past two years. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will lessen the burden of illness or injury, and help sick kids get home sooner.
