42K Step It Your Way
This November, we are inviting you to be a part of the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s community fundraising campaign 42k Your Way for the Nine Telethon, which can showcase your support for sick kids and their families.
The Nine Telethon is the only live televised fundraising event in Queensland. Now in its 7th year, the Nine Telethon will be broadcast from 3 - 6 pm on Saturday 14 November and will feature an exciting format, jam-packed entertainment, celebrities, sporting legends, pop stars, and some extraordinary kids with incredible stories.
This year is the 2nd year we have held our 42k Your Way campaign and we are giving you the opportunity to join people who have completed their marathon efforts right across Queensland by participating and going the distance for sick kids and contribute to the fundraising goal.
This year our 42k Your Way telethon event is designed to get you active and moving by participating in an aerobic steps challenge, all while raising funds for sick kids and their families.
To get involved continue to the bottom of the page for contact details.
On the day
50 aerobic steps, music and entertainment will be set up at the Southbank Piazza so you can show your community commitment in front of the general public, other corporate teams, hospital staff, sick kids and their families plus we will be having live crosses from Nine during each session time. Each step challenge will run for a minimum of 1hour with a stretch session on either side. With live tv filming during each time slot, we ask that you also allow for some flexibility at the event as we may need you to put in the extra mile for the audiences at home and step it up as you have never stepped it up before.
Nominate a time slot to complete your challenge:
“Super-Hero” - Friday 13 Nov, 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
“Let’s Get Physical” 80’s theme - Saturday 14 Nov, 6:00 am to 8:30 am
“Aussie Rock” - Saturday 14 Nov, 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm
All time slots are scheduled to be televised as part of Nine Telethon so we encourage you to dress to impress in your team and show your support in either your uniform, corporate brand or show your fun side with fancy dress – no idea is too crazy provided you can step it your way to 42k!
