What is the Euroz Big Walk for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation?

An adventure walk alongside the river with fantastic activities for the whole family!

Encompassing the beautiful surrounds of the Swan River and Optus Stadium, this event is not only a great day out for the family, it’s also an opportunity for you to fundraise for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation and make a real difference for sick kids and their families in WA.

After 13 great years of the Big Walk, we’re excited to be bringing you a new, re-imagined event on Sunday March 17, 2019. We’d like to say a huge thank you to our previous partners, John Hughes and Rotary, for all their support over that time.

Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation

Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation is the main fundraising body and largest private funder of Perth Children’s Hospital, as we were for Princess Margaret Hospital, as well as the wider Child & Adolescent Health Service in Western Australia. We also work hard to promote healthy lifestyle messages to support parents in keeping their children well.

Princess Margaret Hospital officially closed and Perth Children’s Hospital opened its doors in June 2018. The children’s hospital is the new centrepiece of Western Australia’s child and adolescent health care system and provides the specialty medical treatment required for the most serious medical cases, as well as secondary services including inpatient, outpatient and day stay care. The Foundation looks forward to continuing to enable world class expertise, research and advanced equipment.

You can find out more about our work and the Foundation by visiting our website.

The Foundation is proud to have partnered with the Euroz Charitable Foundation for the 2019 Euroz Big Walk.

Euroz have been long term supporters of the Big Walk and are excited to be involved with this major fundraising event for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Real stories about the children we help

Anna-Faye

When Anna-Faye was born her parents could see that there was something wrong with her eyes, they were turning in frequently and were given a referral to Perth Children’s Hospital. Anna-Faye underwent corrective surgery in July, and although everything went well, there is a possibility that further corrective surgery will be required in the future.

Nickodemus

Thirteen year old Nickodemus was riding a Pocket Rocket motorbike when it became bogged in the sand, falling to one side and in the process breaking his left hip. He was flown to PCH from Broome by the Royal Flying Doctors Service to undergo surgery. Fortunately the accident hasn’t slowed Nickodemus down, and he still loves to play videogames and see his friends!
