Up All Night

A night walking marathon through the suburbs of Perth.

Every day, in the early hours of the morning, there are families at Ronald McDonald House who have been up all night. They are safe, comfortable and cared for so they can give their child all the love and support they need.

Each year over 1,200 walkers from throughout WA experience a walk in these parents’ shoes by walking Up All Night. This 42km overnight walk, starting after dark and ending at dawn, journeys walkers throughout the suburbs of Perth and past Ronald McDonald House Nedlands, whilst raising funds for critically ill and injured children.

In 2021, the event raised over $1.5million for RMHC WA, making an incredible difference to the lives of WA families who rely on the support services RMHC WA provides.

In 2022, we hope to match our $1.5m of donations to support WA families.



Up All Night would not be possible without the incredible support of sponsors, In particular our presenting partner IGO Limited, media partner Nine Perth and Mission Partner McDonalds.
