The 24 hour Phil' Fun-A-Thon 2017

DonateWhat is Phil'?Where does the money go?

The Phil' 24-Hour Fun-A-Thon was on Thur 12 Oct- Fri 13 Oct. Thanks to the generosity of the UNSW community we have raised $76,080.91 so far!


The Fun-A-Thon is the largest event on the Phil’ calendar!

For 24 hours, participants move and play continuously. In 2016 there were over 100 participants, over 2000 physical spectators, 25,000 viewers of our video content, plus nearly a million viewers as we featured on Channel 7’s Sunrise program on the day. In 2017, the Phil’ Fun-A-Thon came back bigger and better!

25 teams of 8 (that's 200 people!) were moving, shaking and playing non-stop for 24 hours to raise money for Child Life and Music Therapy at the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.

Meet our teams!
