Our Mission

Who is Sophie?

Hi, my name is Sophie and I am 16 years old. I have a heart condition called Supraventricular Tachycardia or better known as SVT. I have had three heart operations, two of which at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. The first and second operations were unsuccessful but the third which I had in July 2017 has so far been successful. I began fundraising for the Children's Hospital Foundation in 2015 to suport the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital like they have supported me and many of my close friends. 

'Go Casual for Sick Kids' is about raising awareness, standing out and doing something different. 


I am grateful to have the support of the  Minister for Education, the Hon. Grace Grace MP; Minister for Heath and Minister for Ambulance Services, the Hon. Dr Steven Miles MP. Also, The Children's Hospital Foundation. But to really make a difference I need your support too.  


All donations received will help the Children's Hospital Foundation fund essential medical equipment, life-saving research and entertainment like Juiced TV and help provide support and care to sick kids in hospital.
