A 25KM coastal Walk to support sick kids!

Join us on Sunday 24 March for a 25km walk to support sick and injured children. 

Starting at Lyne Park in Rose Bay, you'll follow the coastline to experience Sydney's most iconic landmarks and spectacular ocean views.

Your 25km walk will end at Ronald McDonald House Randwick, with our kids and families cheering you across the finish line!

Did you know it costs $160 on average to support a sick child and their family for one night?

By taking part in Walk Me Home, you'll ensure sick and injured kids and their families have a safe place to call home as they face the most difficult time of their lives.

Meet our kids

Meet our Walk Me Home ambassadors who will be cheering you across the finish line!

You'll be walking for these little legends.

Zach

Zach smiling

When Zach first started complaining that his knees hurt, doctors and physios thought it was just growing pains. 

But in October last year, they confirmed the worst... Zach was diagnosed with Pre-B Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. 

Hudson

Last year, brave Hudson was diagnosed with t-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. 

His family has stayed with us for 146 nights (so far) while he battles this terrible disease. 

Archie

Archie has spent over 100 nights at the House while he battles group A streptococcal septic shock. 

It's been a scary time for this little cutie, but having his family by his side has made a world of difference. 

Ashley

Seven-year-old Ashley loves animals, unicorns, and fairy tales. She is also one of the bravest little girls you will ever meet.

She's undergone major surgeries and intense chemotherapy in the hopes of beating her leukaemia diagnosis. 

The Journey

This special 25km walk will take you along a course of spectacular scenery and ocean views on your journey to the kids at Ronald McDonald House.

Your impact

By taking part in Walk Me Home, you are doing more than providing a place for sick kids to sleep. You are making sure kids get to keep their families close. You are making sure they get a meal after a long day at the hospital. 

You are giving them a normal childhood at the house and the chance to be kids again. You are providing them with love and support from a community of families, volunteers and staff.

800 Families

Every year, over 800 families stay at Ronald McDonald House.

650 Children

Around 650 children a year are able to continue their education with lessons at the house.

29 Nights

Families stay on average 29 nights at the house, with many staying for months or even years.
