Humpty Dumpty Foundation to fundraise for medical equipment

2 min read

For over 30 years, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and its supporters have provided lifesaving medical equipment and healthcare initiatives for sick babies and children in around 500 hospitals and health services across Australia.  

To date, Humpty has raised almost $100 million, provided thousands of pieces of medical equipment and funded many healthcare initiatives and services for paediatric wards, neonatal units, and maternity and emergency departments across the country.    

Join the foundation on Sunday 26 May 2024 to continue the Humpty Dumpty Foundation’s important work of making a tangible impact, saving lives, and improving the health outcomes of sick kids in hospitals.    

Every year, runners ‘take to the Burn’ to climb Awaba Street, Mosman’s 420-meter race course up Sydney’s steepest hill run.  

The Balmoral Burn, now in its 22nd year, continues to give opportunities for Humpty supporters to empower hospitals and health services around Australia. Every dollar given helps the foundation’s efforts to deliver medical equipment and healthcare initiatives to sick children in hospitals across the country.

Uniting the community for one of Australia’s premier outdoor charity events, the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn is a unique race that challenges participants and corporations to raise money for vital medical equipment for sick kids in hospital.   

The annual event brings together participants – with a passion to feel the Burn – to take on the 420 metre racecourse of Sydney’s steepest hill run up Awaba Street in Mosman. 

From kids to families, schools, community groups, hospitals and corporate relays, there are plenty of ways to participate.  With something for everyone and all fitness levels, this year’s Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn has more than 20 different race categories. 

From the ever colourful Celebration Run, Pet & Owner, Humpty’s Run to spectator favourites including the Senior Schools Head of the Hill and Corporate Relays, the race day will include a new Telco industry race category which will see representatives from the telecommunications sector go head to head in a 4 x 105m relay.
