The third annual Paddle for Kids Festival and Dragon Boat Race Day was a huge success, raising more than $120,000 to support Juiced TV on their mission to connect sick kids across Australia.
We're incredibly grateful for the support from our event partners QSuper, GemLife, Dragon Boat Queensland and the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Plus, our amazing volunteers, entertainers and vendors who donated their time and helped to make the day all that it was!
The funds raised from this year's event will go towards improving the lives of sick kids and their families across Australia. It will also support more days of filming and entertainment at hospitals throughout Queensland and Australia, and assist in developing the 'Juiced Box' app to be an interactive, social networking platform to connect sick kids no matter where they are.
Be sure you catch our season 6 premiere on Monday, 1st July for all the 2019 Paddle for Kids action, packed with interviews from our Hospital Heroes, our magnificent Dragon Boat teams and sporting greats!
A big congratulations also to the teams who took home some of our very special awards on the day!
Thank you to all who came along to make a splash for sick kids, we can’t wait to do it all again next year!!
