About ChIPS – our reason for running

ChIPS is a vibrant peer support program for young people, led by young people.

Based at the Royal Children’s Hospital (Department of Adolescent Medicine) in Melbourne, ChIPS works to engage young people from metropolitan and rural Victoria who are living with a primary diagnosis of a chronic medical illness. 

Delivered for over twenty years, the program is currently is 100% philanthropically funded via The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. All money raised on Aintree Group’s fundraising page for Run For The Kids 2020, will be donated directly to ChIPS.
