Give Me 5 for Kids Celebrates their 25th Year in 2019

Southern Cross Austereo’s annual Give Me 5 for Kids fundraiser launches next month with national ambassadors Shelley Craft, Trent Hodkinson and Kat Springer all on board to make it the most successful year yet by helping to raise more money than ever before.  

Now in its 25th year, Give Me 5 for Kids has raised over $25.9 million for paediatric wards of local hospitals and children’s health-related charities across SCA’s 38 regional markets. Held each year in June, the fundraiser relies on the support and generosity of the local communities.

This year Give Me 5 for Kids will be supported by our 2019 ambassadors, TV & media personality Shelley Craft, NRL Manly Sea Eagles player Trent Hodkinson and social media influencer Kat Springer, aka The Organised Housewife

With an action-packed calendar of events nationally, local communities are encouraged to get involved and dig deep, helping Southern Cross Austereo hit its national target of $3.7 million.

2019 ambassador Shelley Craft said, “I am so excited and proud to be an official ambassador for Give Me 5 For Kids 2019. It’s a great initiative which not only supports sick kids but aims to help their families and the hospitals to make a big difference in their lives.”

John Kelly, Give Me 5 For Kids Director and Southern Cross Austereo Chief Operating Officer said; “We are constantly amazed by the kindness of the community each year and would like to thank them for always digging deep and supporting this very worthy cause.” 

“To see the program grow from a simple coin drive on the NSW Central Coast in the 1990’s into a national annual event benefiting more than 40 paediatric wards in local community hospitals across Australia is truly remarkable.”
