Make your way to Frankston for the big event on 17 November 2024. Give it your best, and know that wherever you place, you're part of the team making wishes come true for sick kids across the country.

I don’t think people realise how important wishes are for kids. They are going through hell and it gives them a distraction and something to look forward to.
