Very Special Kids cares for children with life-threatening conditions by providing a children’s hospice and professional family support services. They help more than 800 families across Victoria with ongoing support from diagnosis all the way through to recovery or bereavement.

Our support for Very Special Kids came through a closer personal connection, as we’ve seen the impact this wonderful Melbourne based childrens’ hospice has had in supporting long term friends who have a child with a serious health conditions requiring 24-hour care.

Through Epic Pharmacy, we’ve entered teams into their annual 24-hour Treadmill Challenge since 2013, and held fundraisers throughout the year to help support this amazing organisation.

Since Epic Pharmacy joined ICON Group, the opportunity to assist fundraising has meant teams from Epic Pharmacy, Slade and Slade Health have been able to get involved, and those running have raised $23,482 (2016), $22,895 (2017) and $24,816 (2018).
