Our Charity Partners
St Gabriel’s in Castle Hill is a co-educational K-12 school catering for students with an intellectual disability in the mild to moderate range, sensory impairment and autism. The School is also a registered charity and has a proud history of providing special education for over 95 years.
Excitingly, St Gabriel's now offers a secondary school for students and families seeking the full educational pathway. Our first cohort of Year 7 students commenced in 2019 and the School will progress to a fully K-12 offering by 2024.
Our School mission remains and that is to provide students with a caring and dynamic education with programs designed to teach, to nurture and to challenge our students so that they can communicate and fully engage in life.
Our specialised programs are effective but costly to run. There is a strong reliance on corporate and community fundraising to assist with the shortfall in government funding and fees.
As the principal fundraiser for Westmead Hospital, Westmead Hospital Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, corporate partners, trusts & foundations, and the general community to allocate funds towards vital pieces of medical equipment – big and small, grants and scholarships, innovative research and health services.
We believe everyone who is sick deserves access to the best possible treatment and care. The funds raised through the Coleman Greig Challenge make a real difference to the lives of people who rely on improved health care services, new medical equipment and critical research for treatments & cures.
Donor generosity allows us to support our patients & families throughout their lives, from before birth in our Women’s & Newborn Health, during life’s challenges such as treatments in our Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre, Renal Centre, right through to end of life with our palliative care programs.
All funds raised through sponsorship fees and donations made on Race Roster will contribute to fundraising for our Charity Partners.
