I’m walking 42km for seriously ill children and their families

Why I am walking - About Will Heffernan

On March 6th, I’m taking part in Up All Night to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia (RMHC WA). Every day, families from across WA come to Perth so that their child can receive essential medical treatment. Ronald McDonald House is their home away from home during the most difficult time of their lives. 

I’m walking in honour of William Alexander Heffernan, who was born on 17 February 2016 and earned his angel's wings and returned home to God peacefully on 16 June 2016 due to complications from congenital heart disease. Little Heart Warrior, William, is the son of Alyssa and Ryan, Abbey and my dear friends, we hold the greatest respect for the love and support this amazing mother and father gave for their sweet baby Will every day and night during his nearly four months on earth. Will’s incredible journey has had a beautiful and lasting impact on those who met him either in person or by learning of his story. Will, Alyssa and Ryan are an inspiration and it’s an honour to walk for Will’s memory and to raise funds for families who need the support of organisations such as RMHC.
