Revving up for the Grand Prix

It was nothing but fast cars and arcade action for the boys that attended the Very Special Kids Mates Weekend in March.

The weekend kicked off with some tasty eats at Grill’d Malvern followed by a visit to Crown’s Galactic Circus for some ten pin bowling and fun interactive games!

The boys then got revved up for some pedal to the metal action at the Formula One Grand Prix on Saturday to watch the qualifying final. This was definitely the highlight of the weekend and it was made possible by the Australian Grand Prix Corporation – a big thank you for your generosity and support!

Very Special Kids would also like to thank Grill’d Malvern and our amazing volunteers who made the Mates Weekend a raging success.

Mates Weekends are designed to bring together children who have high cognitive ability and are facing similar physical challenges.

From 20 to 21 May more than 1,000 participants will run the 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge to raise funds for children in 24 hour care at Very Special Kids Hospice. To sponsor a runner visit
