Rev up your engines for the eighth annual Kruze 4 Kidz event.

Kruze 4 Kidz is a car show and family day held annually on Good Friday to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

Event founder Brad Radclyffe said the event was his way of supporting the hospital appeal in a fun and inclusive way for families.

“On the day, we will have a wide range of vehicles,” he said. “We’ve got trucks, motorbikes and cars. We should have over 1000 vehicles on display.

“If we achieve that, we will be one of Melbourne’s biggest charity motor shows.”

The hospital and the appeal hold a special place in Mr Radclyffe’s heart – he spent time in the Royal Children’s Hospital as a child. He said he hoped the money raised from the event would benefit the children at the hospital.

“What it’s about is trying to make life better for the kids in the hospital, try and give them the best medical equipment and research [and] try and give them a more comfortable life,” he said.

Kruze 4 Kidz has raised $66,370 for the Good Friday Appeal since it began eight years ago.

Mr Radclyffe said he aimed to raise $20,000 at this year’s event on April 19.

There will be kids entertainment, live music, auctions and raffles from 10am-4pm at Langama Park, Sunbury.
