Launched in 2013, the Sydney City Scramble helped raise awareness and much needed funding for the Schizophrenia Research Institute. The national medical research Institute is the only organisation solely dedicated to discovering ways to prevent and cure schizophrenia, a mental illness that affects approximately 1 in 100 people in Australia including teenagers. Teams participating in last year's Sydney City Scramble raised over $33,000 for schizophrenia research. The event hopes to raise more funds as new teams come on board and and 2013 winning teams return to defend their titles.

There are 3 main prize categories including the Scramble winner, best dressed and highest fundraiser. Some of last year's teams include Scramble winners 'Catchmeifyoucan' and 'The Justice League'. The best dressed Scramblers were 'The Famous Five' and 'The Scrambling Scrabbles'. and the teams who raised the most funds were 'Brookfield Multiplex' and 'MPW'.
