Saturday 12 March 2022 – Sunday 13 March 2022
Taking in some of Perth’s best spots by night, you'll be walking a marathon distance (42km) with pit stops to refresh and recharge every 5km.
HOW FAR IS THE WALK?
It’s a marathon distance walk (42km), but we’ll have pit stops every 5km to recharge and refresh. There will also be support vehicles combing the route – this is an event for everyone!
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
The minimum age in order to participate is 16 years old, at the time of the Event. If you are under the age of 18, you MUST have a guardian accompany you on the Event as a fellow, registered participant.
CAN I BRING MY DOG ON THE WALK?
No, unfortunately we don't allow any dogs in this event, for the safety of all of our walkers.
CAN I BRING MY CHILD OR BABY ON THE WALK?
Due to our insurance requirements, children under 16 (including babes in arms) are unable to enter the course or participate in the event. They are however more than welcome to join you at the start and/or finish line to cheer you on.
HOW MUCH IS IT TO REGISTER?
The standard registration fee is $50.
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.
WHY DO I HAVE TO RAISE AT LEAST $500?
Up All Night being held… well, at night... comes with some challenges!
The first is that for safety, there are a limited number of spaces. What this means is that each person has a responsibility to fundraise because Up All Night is all about the kids who travel so far to receive life-saving treatment. And by setting a minimum fundraising target, everyone is on board for the same goal. This target is on par or less than similar fully supported events.
Our amazing fundraisers have told us that $500 is very achievable when you put your mind to it. In fact, on average they raise $750 with the support of the Up All Night Team. If you’re not confident about that target, there are other ways to be involved too – like volunteering on the night.
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.
HOW DOES IT WORK WITH INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM TOTALS?
When you fundraise to your personal page, your donations go towards your team total. People may also donate directly to your team, however this will not be tallied to your individual totals. Should your team raise more than the required minimum amount of $500 per team member it will be up to your team captain’s discretion whether members who haven’t raised $500 individually can take a share in the team total and get to participate.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I HAVE IN A TEAM?
The world is your oyster here... minimum: two people, maximum: infinity!
HOW DO I CREATE A TEAM?
When you register you will be prompted to Create a team or Join a Team. Select “Create a team”; enter your chosen team name, team picture and information and you are on your way. You’ll be able to share a link inviting people to join your team.
HOW DO I JOIN AN EXISTING TEAM?
When you first register you will be prompted to “Create a team” or "Join a Team". Select “Join a team” and you will be able to use a drop down menu to select one of the already registered teams. If you have already registered but wish to join an already existing team then take a look at this page to view the list of current teams: https://www.upallnight.org.au/sponsor/teams.
You can then view their page, and join the team.
Alternatively, give us a call on 08 9346 9000 / email us on email@example.com and we’ll help get you sorted.
I CAN NO LONGER PARTICIPATE IN THE WALK. CAN I GET A REFUND ON MY REGISTRATION AND SELF-DONATIONS?
This registration fee is non-refundable, however extreme circumstances will be reviewed and a refund may be given at the discretion of RMHC staff.
I'VE CANCELLED MY REGISTRATION. CAN MY SUPPORTERS AND SPONSORS RECEIVE A REFUND ON THEIR DONATION?
We are very grateful for any donations that will help Ronald McDonald House Charities WA deliver our essential services. However, if your withdrawal sees any supporters and sponsors wishing for a refund, they will need to contact RMHC directly to have that processed.
