2019 Event - Mix 94.5 Kids Appeal with Telethon
This iconic appeal in the middle of the year takes over mix 94.5 for two weeks. It is the radio station's biggest community project each year and it raises over $500,000 for much needed equipment for Princess Margaret Hospital for Children. Woolworths jump on board to support the appeal by collecting donations from shoppers at the 80+ locations around W.A. and by running their own fundraising events at each store.
2019 Event - HBF Fitness Challenge
Each year Matt Fuller takes on the HBF Fitness Challenge across the Telethon Weekend. Matt spends months training on a particular bike or fitness machine to be able to complete a marathon endurance over the Telethon Weekend, which raises an enormous amount for Telethon.
2019 Event - Antarctica Sightseeing
Taking a one day flight from Perth to Antarctica and back is one of the most amazing journeys you can ever have. It starts off like a normal Qantas flight with great service, food and beverages and then after about 3 hours you see your first ice and before long you are flying over the Antarctica coastline for about four hours.
The energy and excitement inside the plane is one of the highlights of this extraordinary experience. Plus the fact that you get to do it on Australia Day makes it just that little bit more special. If you ever get the opportunity to experience one of these 12 hour flights, do it! The next one is scheduled for January 26, 2019. Proceeds come to Telethon.
