Charity Partner

Fundraising is central to the Great Adventure Challenge ethos, and as such, teams are encouraged to raise vital funds for charity, giving our Adventurers a huge sense of achievement, both from a racing perspective, as well as a fundraising perspective. We also believe that encouraging teams to support a charity also carries additional Business Benefits, improving staff morale and providing added focus and impetus to team performance.

Since 2008, our primary Charity Partner has been the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity organisation whose mission is to transform the lives of seriously ill and hospitailsed children and their families, throughout Australia.

Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia. For thousands of families this leads the diagnosis of illness that changes their lives forever. Since 1988 The Starlight Children’s Foundation has delivered a range of programs both in and out of hospital, designed to support the well being & resilience of these seriously ill children and their families by delivering fun, laughter and positive distraction to restore the fun and laughter serious illness takes away. 

Starlight programs are integral to the total care of seriously ill children and young people – while the health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child – giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again. Starlight’s core programs include Captain Starlight, Starlight Express Rooms, Starlight TV, Fun Centres, Livewire, Wishgranting, Livewire and an Outreach program in the Northern Territory.
