Join us for a unique and challenging event and help make a difference to children with serious illness and disabilities and their families who stay at Ronald McDonald House South Australia.
Kangaroo Island (KI) was severely affected by bush fires earlier this year so it was decided to take the Ride for Sick Kids to KI in 2020 to help inject some much needed money into the local economy.
The ride is fully supported on and off the road, including support vehicles and crew, accommodation, all meals provided, team uniform and a community celebration event to welcome home the team.
If you would like more information or are interested in being part of the 2020 event, you can access the 2020 RFSK expression of interest brochure here. Make sure you get in quick as we expect this event to fill up fast!
RIDE FOR SICK KIDS SOUTH AUSTRALIA 2019 RAISED MORE THAN $350,000 FOR RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES
Ronald McDonald House Charities SA (RMHC SA) is delighted to announce that the 2019 RFSK team raised an incredible $350,000 through their ride and fundraising efforts.
From 17th – 23rd November, the riders navigated terrain across regional SA in the first ever Adelaide to Adelaide ride, taking in the best that the state has to offer.
The event finished at West Beach Parks Football Centre, where families who use the services of the House were waiting to welcome home the brave riders at the annual Family Christmas Party hosted by the Friends Committee at RMHC SA . 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 8,000 kilometres has been travelled, raising over $1.8 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, Elders, Coca Cola, Hertz Australia, Ride and Shine, Farmers Union, Total Tenders Services and our support partners.
