ENCOURAGE SUPPORT FOR YOUR BOAT
Over the years Little Heroes Foundation has raised more than $16 million dollars for lifesaving facilities at Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital and provide daily support for families through the Little Heroes Care program.

Funded projects at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital include:

$2 million towards the Michael Rice Centre for Haematology and Oncology

$3 million for two new MRI machines and an ambient lighting package

$1.5 million for the Play Deck and adjoining café

$1 million for a state of the art endoscopic operating theatre

We have now set our sights on raising $4 million for a world class Robotic Rehabilitation and Research Centre at Adelaide's Women's and Children's Hospital to help seriously ill children get back on their feet.

Become a ‘Flag Sponsor’ and fundraise for Little Heroes Foundation. If you fundraise over $1000, you will receive a Limited Edition 'Hero' Flag (1300mm x 900mm) to fly on your boat. Yellow (900mm x 600mm) Flotilla for Kids Flags are also available for purchase from Sports Centre Online.

Challenge your crew, friends, colleagues or social club to support your vessel’s participation by making a donation to your fundraising campaign. Online donation pages will be available through our HeroesHQ fundraising website. Jennifer from Little Heroes Foundation will be establishing the Flotilla for Kids fundraising page. Once online, you will be able to create your profile and make an optional donation to kick start your fundraising page for Flotilla for Kids.
