REGISTRATION

HOW MUCH IS IT TO REGISTER?

The registration fee for this event is $50.

TRAINING

42KM SEEMS A LOT, CAN I MANAGE IT?

Definitely! Not only will we send you some awesome training tips along the way, but we’ll be arranging public training walks. The main thing is stepping up for sick kids. It doesn’t matter how fast you walk the route or how much of the route you complete.

FUNDRAISING

HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO RAISE?

The minimum amout to fundraise to take part in this event is $500.

WHY DO I HAVE TO RAISE ATLEAST $500?

It costs Ronald McDonald House Charities WA approx. $9,200 per night to accommodate seriously ill children and their families, that’s $3,300,000 per year. Over 75% of the funds needed to keep the doors open 365 days a year comes from the generosity and support of the Western Australian community. Without support like yours, Ronald McDonald House wouldn’t be there for families when they need it most.

What’s the bottom line? Ronald McDonald House needs Up All Night to raise a lot of money, because it costs a lot of money to keep the doors open and families together during the most difficult times in their lives. That’s why we’re asking you to step up and raise $500 for sick kids. You’ve got this!

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T RAISE THE $500?

First of all, you will. You’ll have top class support from the team at Ronald McDonald House – we’re here to help every step of the way, in any way we can. You need to raise $500 to take part, but the average person fundraising for Ronald McDonald House through events like this raise in excess of $1,500 – people are incredibly generous when it comes to supporting sick kids! 

If you don’t raise the funds and don’t want to walk, that’s not an issue – you’re not tied in to anything, and you can choose to withdraw or to volunteer on the night. The important thing today is that you step up to the mark and say you want to do something amazing for sick kids. Be a champion.

I'M IN A TEAM, DO WE STILL NEED TO RAISE $500 EACH?

Everyone on the team needs to raise $500 each – if you’re having any issues, give us a call and we’ll help you sort it out!
