The WCH Foundation’s inaugural Challenge 21 was a massive success! Over 400 challengers pushed themselves out of their comfort zone from September 20 to October 10 and raised over $221,000 for families cared for by the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Network!
The breadth of creativity from challengers was amazing to see, with participants challenging themselves to everything from baking 21 goodies, learning 21 songs, reading 21 books, walking 21km, exercising for 21 days, kicking 21 goals, performing 21 gigs to giving up chocolate for 21 days!
It’s the most wonderful time of year and we know during the holiday season our amazing community love to support families who rely on our Women’s and Children’s Hospital!
To make things easy, we’ve compiled your go-to guide on how to support the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation this Christmas.
‘Mirdilyayanthi’ is the Kaurna word for ‘to shine bright’ – a perfect name for the WCH Foundation’s latest exhibition featuring five amazing Adelaide-based artists whose work is shining incredibly brightly from the walls of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital! Grace Bennett, Elizabeth Yanyi Close, Shane Kooka, Thomas Readett and Jackie Saunders are all currently exhibiting in Mirdilyayanthi. This exhibition, presented by the WCH Foundation’s Arts in Health program, is part of the Art Gallery of South Australia’s Tarnanthi festival – an opportunity to experience Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in all its diversity.
