Join us in celebrating our superheroes in Hospital!

On Wednesday 25 March 2020 the WCH Foundation is launching its inaugural Superhero Day to raise vital funds to support children and their families who rely on the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Walk through the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH) on any given day and you will be surrounded by superheroes.

But, they aren’t wearing capes and they can’t see through walls or fly… they are the doctors, the nurses and the paramedics working around the clock to save the lives of our state’s youngest. They are the families – mums, dads, grandpas, grandmas and siblings – who don’t leave their little one’s side. And of course, the brave patients themselves.

Superhero Day will see South Australians dress up as their favourite superhero or engage in superhero-themed activities. These celebrations will also coincide with Superhero Day in the Hospital.

In your community, you would be hard pressed to find a child and their family who hasn’t experienced care from the WCH. Superhero Day is an excellent opportunity for your kindergarten, school, workplace or community group to support the superheroes in the Hospital, while having fun, acquiring new skills and engaging your community.

If you would like to take part in our 2020 Superhero Day, please complete the online registration below or download a copy of the registration form.

How you can get involved!

There are many ways to get involved. Here are a few ideas:


  • Dress up as your favourite superhero character for a donation to the WCH Foundation.
  • You can come dressed head-to-toe as a superhero character, or simply wear a mask!



  • Have a superhero-themed bake-sale with all proceeds donated to the WCH Foundation.
  • During the lunch break, watch your favourite superhero program for a donation.



  • Hold a superhero running race or obstacle course. Participants can receive sponsorship for simply being involved, or for the number of laps completed.


More ideas for schools

  • Dressing up is an important part of play, positively affects children’s development, fosters imagination and assists with understanding the world around them.
  • Incorporate Superhero Day into the classroom by getting students to design and decorate their own mask or have students write their own superhero short story or discuss what super powers they have.
  • If your students cannot dress up, they can sponsor a teacher to wear a superhero costume for the day.
  • Be a ‘Super helper’ within the community. Students receive sponsorship to help someone within their community or home. It could be as simple as washing the dishes for a week at home, collecting recyclable cans or watering their neighbour’s garden.
