The funds raised from our public events have been able to assist the Royal Children’s Hospital in all different areas, including the purchase of various equipment. Our 2011 Great Amazing Race supported the purchase of a warmer/cooler device for the sophisticated heart-lung machine that takes over the job of a child’s heart and lungs during cardiac surgery. The funds raised from the 2012 and 2013 Great Amazing Race helped the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) of the hospital (www.rch.org.au/picu) purchase some oxygen saturation monitors to attach to their life support machines, in particular ECMO.
