THE IMPACT OF PADDLE FOR KIDS
In the last two years, more than 680 participants from South East Queensland communities have taken to the Brisbane River to Paddle for Kids, and in doing so have raised a phenomenal $157,000 to help sick kids!
These funds have allowed Juiced TV to improve the lives of sick kids in Brisbane and in regional hospitals across Queensland through the distribution of the ‘Juiced Box’ mobile application.
The support from this year's event will go towards:
Improving the lives of sick kids and their families across Australia
Support more days of filming and entertainment at hospitals throughout Queensland and Australia
Developing the 'Juiced Box' to be an interactive, social networking platform to connect sick kids

Juiced TV is an Australian first entertainment and distraction initiative that benefits the health and wellbeing of sick kids and their families in hospital.
Since its launch in 2015, Juiced TV has directly touched the lives of more than 2,700 patients and their families.
In 2018, we launched our very own mobile application the ‘Juiced Box’, making the program available to patients throughout regional Queensland hospitals, in Townsville, Mackay and Bundaberg.
