The difference you’ll make

The funds you raise by taking part in 42k Your Way will be used to support children like Mahalia.

Mahalia has a rare disorder characterised by abnormalities of the 22nd chromosome, which has led to many health complications. With such high medical needs her family must take her health day by day. Despite the incredible amount little Mahalia has been through, she remains the most precious, happy, and loving little girl you could ever wish to meet.

She has a love of horses and shows no fear when riding, always choosing the biggest horse she can find and controlling the reins all by herself.

Mahalia has multiple appointments each month and has had many admissions at Queensland Children’s Hospital.


About Children’s Hospital Foundation

Children’s Hospital Foundation funds cutting-edge equipment, vital research and on the ground support for kids with all illnesses, injuries and conditions.

We identify and action gaps in funding and support right across the kids’ health landscape – the places left lacking but no less deserving.

Sometimes these gaps can appear small, filled by acts of kindness or compassion – a helping hand, a knowing smile, a place to play during a hospital stay.

Other times these gaps are large, bridged only by championing world-class care and treatment or breakthroughs in research and technology.

Every dollar you raise through taking part in 42k Your Way can be the difference every kid deserves.
