George escapes wheel

District Docklands CEO George Karabatsos and his team on March 8 raised more than $30,000 for The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Good Friday Appeal.

Mr Karabatsos was one of 20 celebrity team leaders who accepted a challenge from 3AW presenter Neil Mitchell to “escape” from the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel by raising at least $10,000 for the charity.

This year, the “Escape from Neil’s Wheel” event raised $336,600 – considerably more than the inaugural event in 2018.

Mr Karabatsos said he accepted the challenge because he wanted to make a difference to the lives of sick children.

The money raised will help buy state-of-the-art anaesthesia and patient monitoring machines for operating theatres.

This new technology will enhance patient monitoring, breathing support and staff efficiency and will integrate smoothly into the electronic medical record system.
