Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital. When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and rediscover the joy of childhood.
There’s a Starlight Express Room in every children’s hospital in Australia. In these vibrant medical-free zones our superhero, Captain Starlight, brightens the world for seriously ill children and their families.
Through games, movies, performances and more, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness for a while and get down to the serious business of having fun! Captain Starlight also brightens the otherwise clinical wards with daily ward rounds full of jokes, magic and laughter. There are over 160 Captain Starlights delivering joy around the country!
