Up All Night walking marathon raises $1 million for sick children

GMA partnered Ronald McDonald House Charities in Western Australia (RMHC WA) in a dollar matching day fundraiser to raise funds for seriously ill children and their families. 

For the dollar matching day, we pledged a contribution of AUD$10,000 to match individual donations of up to AUD $250. When a donor contributes AUD$250, GMA matches the amount to make it AUD$500.

The response was overwhelming with GMA’s allocation used up within two minutes! The total funds received that day amounted to AUD $48,704 which was almost five times the amount raised on previous dollar matching days.

This fundraiser contributes to the Up All Night – a 42km walking marathon, which took place after dark and finished at dawn on 30 November 2019.

The event raised over AUD $1 million for RMHC WA which will go towards providing accommodation for regional families of seriously ill children receiving hospital treatment in Perth, Western Australia.
