A month of fundraising for sick kids who need treatment at Dubbo Hospital wrapped up on Sunday at a charity race day put on by the Dubbo Turf Club.
The event was held in support of the annual Give Me 5 for Kids campaign organised by Southern Cross Austero, owners of the Hit93.5 radio station.
A car wash, pancake day, golf event and telethon were just some of the events held to raise funds in June.
Southern Cross Austero's Dubbo general manager Brad Jephcott said Give Me 5 for Kids started out 25 years ago when people were asked to donate spare five cent coins.
"100 per cent of the money we raise goes to the local hospital," he said.
"We ask a lot of the community so it's important that we are giving back.
"We do have a bit of fun with it as well."
Hit93.5 breakfast show presenter Pippa Moore said money raised helped the hospital buy vital equipment to help kids.
"Dubbo Hospital treats over 12,000 children every year and that's from as far reaching as places like Bourke," she said.
"They have cameras that connect straight to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPA) in Sydney.
"When doctors and nurses are treating they can actually patch into the RPA and get medical assistance from the staff there rather than having to transfer the child.
"Patients in regional areas deserve just as higher quality medical care as they do in capital cities."
