Sleepless nights are part and parcel of being the parent of a sick child. Now you can walk a night in their shoes and support Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia... Join us for Up All Night.
This overnight walk, starting after dark and ending at dawn, places you in the shoes of the parents who stay with us at the House.
We’ll be taking in the best of Perth by night, offering you the chance to see our beautiful city in a different light. Along the way, we’ll have pit stops for you to recharge and refresh.
Most importantly, by getting involved, not only will you be showing that you care about the families at Ronald McDonald House, but that you understand a little bit of what they’re up all night going through.
Every day, we walk alongside the families of sick children as they face the most difficult journey of their lives. We’re asking you to step up and stand shoulder to shoulder with us.
Participants need to raise at least $500 for RMHC WA but, on average, legends who fundraise for us raise double that amount. So - aim high and smash it out of the park for the kids!
Meet the beautiful
At just six months old, baby Tahlea was flown from Geraldton to Perth after contracting meningococcal septicaemia w strain. While Tahlea battled for her life in the ICU, her family moved into Ronald McDonald House so they could stay close to Tahlea and be involved in her treatment. Our House is keeping the Dalgety’s together during an extremely difficult time in their lives. Tahlea’s mum, Chelsea, can’t say thank you enough!
