With PA Giving Day 2020 taking place on 3 September, the PA Giving Day We're all 4 the Heroes campaign has officially launched, with the aim of raising $500,000 for the PA Hospital.
Thanks to generous matching donors, all donations to PA Giving Day will be quadrupled, giving donors the chance to have four times the impact. All funds raised will go towards patient support, state of the art equipment, medical research and staff education at the PA Hospital campus, to improve health care and outcomes for patients, their families and the wider PA community.
The theme of this year's campaign, We're all 4 the Heroes, provides the PA community with the perfect opportunity to recognize and thank the healthcare heroes who work tirelessly everyday to deliver each patient the best care possible.
The PA Hospital, which will receive more than 700,000 patients visits in 2020, is one of Australia's leading academic and research health centres, providing world-class care to patients throughout Queensland.
"PA Giving Day is as much about fundraising for important work as it is about celebrating the PA Community where researchers work alongside clinicians, nurses, support staff, and allied health professionals to improve outcomes for people under their care," PA Research Foundation Chief Executive Officer Damian Topp said.
"We know that people love and respect the essential work they do. PA Giving Day is the perfect time to thank them."
There are numerous ways to support the PA Giving Day We're all 4 the Heroes campaign including donating, forming a team and raising funds or by raising funds individually, or even sharing the campaign with family and friends on social media.
More than 60 teams from across the PA Community have already registered to raise funds for their research or patient support initiatives and have already begun to contribute to their fundraising totals ahead of PA Giving Day on 3 September.
Mr Topp said it's campaigns like PA Giving Day that allow the PA Hospital to be at the cutting edge of medical research and a leader in bettering patient outcomes.
"Healthcare budgets can only stretch so far, donating to PA Giving Day ensures present and future generations of Queenslanders benefit from receiving the exceptional healthcare that the PA is renowned for," he said.
