Give Me 5 For Kids
92.7 Mix FM's Give Me 5 for Kids makes a real difference to the lives of the children of the Sunshine Coast and their families.
2017 GM5FK raised $403,689 and supported the following projects:
Continuing the local Clown Doctor service to bring smiles to the faces of the Coast's youngest patients.
Finishing touches on the Children's Ward and Paediatric Emergency Department at SCUH including play pods, distractive equipment and therapy.
Continuing the Yoga Therapy programme which costs around $13,000 each year.
Two Hamilton T1 ventilators for paediatric emergency patients at both Nambour and SCUH Emergency Departments costing $82,000. The first local Mix FM’s Give Me 5 for Kids appeal held in 2000 raised funds to purchase a ventilator for retrievals and we replaced that equipment with Mix FM GM5 funds 10 years later.
