RIDE FOR SICK KIDS SOUTH AUSTRALIA 2018 RAISES MORE THAN $300,000 FOR RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is delighted to announce that a team of thirty-four cyclists have raised over $300,000 for the 2018 ‘RMHC Ride for Sick Kids’ (RFSK) South Australia.
From 18th – 24th November, the riders navigated terrain throughout the Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas over seven days from Port Lincoln to Adelaide, visiting students at Tumby Bay Area School, Yorketown Primary School and Balaklava Primary School along the route.
The event finished at West Adelaide Football Club where RMHC held its annual Christmas Family Fun Day. Riders met families that have stayed at Ronald McDonald House Adelaide and saw first-hand how the funds raised from RFSK SA will make a difference to the lives of South Australians caring for a severely sick or injured child.
Since the inaugural ride in 2012, more than 7,000 kilometres has been travelled, raising over $1.5 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities and its programs in South Australia. These funds are vital in allowing the charity to continue to do what they do best – keep families with severely sick or injured children together.
RMHC would like to say a big thank you to the riders, support crew, local community for their support and donations.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our corporate partners who supported this event – McDonald’ SA Owner/Operators, The Advertiser, First National Real Estate, Balco Australia, Mawson Lakes Hotel & Function Centre, Coca-Cola Amatil, Hertz Australia and Ride & Shine Mobile Bicycle Repairs and our support partners.
