Car show raises money for the kids

Former patient Bradley starts car show and family day to give back to The Royal Children's Hospital.

For the past decade, the Kruze 4 Kids Car Show and Family Day has been a fixture on the Good Friday fundraising event calendar.

Since it began in 2012, the event, held in Sunbury, has raised $76,479 for the Good Friday Appeal.

The event was the brainchild of Bradley Radclyffe, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was aged 7. It brings together hundreds of people showing their cars and bikes, as well as families enjoying the show, face painting, stalls and more.

Bradley spent much of his childhood at The Royal Children’s Hospital and wanted to help make a positive difference for other kids treated at the Hospital.

He was passionate about motorsport and brought together his love of cars and desire to raise funds for the RCH to create the family fun day.

Bradley sadly passed away in January 2020 and his father Alan Radclyffe and their family are continuing Bradley’s legacy through Kruze 4 Kids.

The 2021 event raised an incredible $31,240 for the Appeal and the family are already making plans for future fundraising and events to continue supporting the Appeal.
