2020 Supertee Project

Our 2020 Pledge is to support the Supertee Project to purchase as many Supertees as we can for the children at the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide.

With every party booking made in 2020 we will donate 10% of the total to our * 2020 Supertee Crew *  Each quarter we will donate the funds to purchase as many as we can to support putting smiles on the children's faces and to build their confidence as they are superheros!

We are absolutely thrilled to be working with the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation to proudly support where we can on this project and more in 2020. 

Factual summary:

 A SuperTee is a specially designed top that is easily accessed from the top or sides for use in a medical environment and is styled to look like a superhero dress up. It has underarm openings for taking a patient’s temperature, and side and shoulder openings for access to tubes and feeding lines. It was designed by Jason Sotiris, whose daughter was receiving treatment in Westmead Children’s Hospital in Sydney.

 

Detailed story:

 Being diagnosed with a medical condition and a schedule of invasive treatment is scary for anyone, let alone a child.

 

Any child who faces the challenges of illness, medical treatments and long hospital stays is a superhero… so they should look the part when they go into battle!

 

Introducing SuperTees!

 

A SuperTee is a specially designed top that is easily accessed from the top or sides for use in a medical environment and is styled to look like a superhero dress up – cape and all! It has underarm openings for taking a patient’s temperature, and side and shoulder openings for access to tubes and feeding lines. Traditionally a patient would need to take off their top during medical examinations and treatment, or wear a hospital robe, which is very uncomfortable.

 

The SuperTee gives the child the opportunity to feel like a superhero, it gives them the power to feel strong and brave during their daunting treatment.

 

Inspired by Cameron Aloisi, a young boy who had cancer treatment at Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital and in Sydney, Rotarian Brian Wybrow was motivated to make a difference, but partnerships are the key to achieving dreams.

 

On Monday 2 September, the Rotary Club of Mobilong delivered its first 50 Supertees to the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation. These Supertees have now been delivered to the Hospital by the Foundation and are being handed to little superheroes.

 

There are many more superheroes who need their SuperTee.
