92.7 Mix FM's 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. The month-long appeal is held in June every year and has raised $5 million for the needs of local paediatric patients.

Comprising multiple events, socials, on-air auctions and a tin drive, the successful campaign is spearheaded by Mix FM's dedicated team who rally the community each year to help create world-class public health care for our youngest patients.

Read on below for the full 2019 calendar and event descriptions.





Funding to continue the local Clown Doctor service - delivering gags and giggles to sick children. A little humour goes a long way to treating children on the Sunshine Coast. The inspiring program treats young patients with a unique blend of 'laughter medicine' featuring jokes, silly dances and goofy songs.

100% of the local Clown Doctor service is funded by Wishlist. We are the only hospital foundation in Australia to indepedantly fund local Clown Doctors, thanks to fundraising through the 92.7 Mix FM's Give Me 5 For Kids appeal and the local community.

TARGET: $113,000 p/a




Vital equipment for an Inter-hospital Paediatric Critical Care Transport Team—providing safe and timely transport to critically unwell children from outlying and regional hospitals to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for specialised care. Currently, transport of these children relies heavily on a team dispatched from Brisbane. Providing this equipment for a Sunshine Coast-based transport team will reduce the delay in critical care for children.
TARGET: $130,000
Funding to continue the Children’s Yoga Therapy– applying the therapeutical tools of yoga to help sick children get to a state of calm so their body can focus on healing.
Therapy sessions include breathing, relaxation techniques, yoga poses and affirmations. The sessions are especially helpful for patients with procedural anxiety, asthma, eating disorders and digestive issues. 
TARGET: $14,400 p/a
A range of distraction therapy items for kids to support paediatric services. Toys, bubbles, colouring kits and games to distract our littlest patients while they undergo treatment and care in hospital. 
TARGET: $5,000
