About TdK Red Centre Challenge 2019

The 2018 Tour de Kids Red Centre Challenge raised an amazing $225,000 for Starlight's Healthier Futures Initiative, supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. These funds enabled the renovation of a Starlight ‘Playroom’ in Alice Springs Hospital plus the recruitment of 6 Captain Starlights in Alice Springs.

As a result of this, Captain Starlight along with health professionals, has been on 32 trips to remote communities, spent 40 days in community, visited 19 different communities and  seen over 1036 kids in remote communities. Additionally, since renovating the room there have been 2899 visits to the playroom.  Sick kids and their families now have access to an inviting space within the walls of what is often a sterile, cold and isolating hospital environment. As a result of both the hospital playroom and remote community visits, there has been reduced level of boredom, fear and anxiety in patients, a decrease in families self-discharging, increase in clinic attendance and repeat attendance plus a delivery of a more positive all-round hospital & clinic experience. 

Our goal for this year is to raise $300,000 to continue program delivery.

There is only so much I can do on my own.
