This year, the iconic Lake Macquaire will celebrate its 35th year of running! What better way to celebrate then by raising money for the NICU at John Hunter Children's Hospital.

The NICU is part of the New south Wales network of neonatal units serving Hunter New England and North coast of NSW. The unit has 18 intensive care and 24 special care beds, providing state-of-the-art, comprehensive specialty care to newborn infants with a wide range of congenital and acquired conditions.

Your support will assist the 1100 newborns who are cared for annually, including extremely premature infants born as early as 23 weeks gestation, up to term infants with a variety of medical and surgical illnesses.
