Held on 2 March, the Friends of the Children Foundation (FOTCF) Walk for Monash Children charity event was hugely successful, managing to raise $30,597.81. The majority of the funds raised from this fun run/ walk at Jells Park will go towards purchasing beds for the parents of sick children to use when their child is staying at Monash Children’s Hospital.

The FOTCF volunteers helped to cook up a sausage sizzle storm for participants after they had crossed the finish line. Everyone seemed to be in great spirits and were delighted in the amount of money raised towards the hospital.

All FOTCF events revolve around their belief that “children are our future”. The foundation was founded in 1998 and held their first inaugural walk to raise funds for Monash Children’s Hospital in February 2013. Participants could do a 5km, 10km or 15km walk or run.
