Phil' 24 Hour Fun-A-Thon

What is the 24-hour FUN-A-THON?

The biggest event on the Phil' calendar is the 24-hr fundraising marathon (FUN-A-THON) . In teams, participants compete against each other in challenges to raise money for Child Life & Music Therapy at The Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick. Every hour on the hour there is a different challenge each with an element of fun: from bubble soccer to karaoke and silent disco to yoga. 

Get ready for 24 hours of movin’, shakin’ and do-good-makin’ starting Monday 19th October 2020!

'What did you love about the Fun-A-Thon?'

“the sense of community and the way it made my heart Phil' ”

“the overnight activities, there is something special about being on campus at that time when everyone else has gone home.”

“the midnight silent disco, is was amazing! Also the people running it!”

“ Fun-A-Thon is the biggest and most rewarding event I've ever been a part of! You get to bond so much with your team and get a bit of a competitive kick in each of the hourly challenges, which are always something different, fun and related to the cause. “

“how it brought a large group of people from across the whole spectrum of the uni to work together to raise such a significant amount of money for an amazing cause, all while having the most fun!”

“it was amazing being able to spend 24 hours getting to know the people from my team better. We did a lot of bonding over the time and it really strengthened our relationships. It’s kind of amazing how quickly the 24 hours went by because of how much fun we were having.”

"getting together as a team and doing something for the people who make kids’ lives better while they are going through their journey in hospital.”

“It's hard to believe how much of a difference you can make as a participant, not only in raising valuable funds for children in need, but also acting as advocates for the Child Life and Music Therapy Unit. I've seen their work in action, and it is honestly outstanding the way they transform the hospital environment into a less scary and traumatizing place. This will forever be one of the fondest memories I will keep from my time at UNSW!”
