For one day a year, tracky dacks become the fashion choice that says “I care.”

Here’s why – sick kids in hospital are encouraged to get into tracksuit pants and out of their pj’s to transform their mood. Any day in May, we invite you to ‘dack up’ in solidarity with these children to show them that Australia cares.



Tracky Dack Day is organised by TLC for Kids, Australia’s most inclusive children’s charity. Funds raised from Tracky Dack Day will provide practical relief to sick kids and their families.

No sick child should be put on a waiting list to get help. No child should be excluded on the basis of their illness, disability or age. No family should go without support in times of crisis.
And yet, many sick kids and their families slip through the gaps of existing charity services, left without help to face a mountain of financial, practical and emotional burdens. A simple hand-up could be all that’s needed to provide a moment of happiness or relief for these families.
TLC for Kids has developed a restriction-free service model to provide immediate distraction, comfort and practical relief via our two key programs, both in and out of the hospital.
For 25 years, we have worked behind the scenes to help kids of all conditions and disabilities as many times as needed, no matter who they are or where they come from.


Our services have been delivered in 405 hospitals across Australia and New Zealand.

TLC for Kids has partnered with Toll IPEC in order to deliver our services across the entire nation, including regional and rural areas. This gives us the widest reach of any children’s charity in the country. You can view the hospitals here.
