The Foundation on the frontline
Euroz Big Walk 2020
Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation regrets to advise that we have made the decision to cancel Euroz Big Walk for 2020 in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Euroz Big Walk is not just a walk in the park – every dollar raised makes a real difference for WA sick kids and their families.
Taking in some of Perth’s iconic scenery, the 2020 Euroz Big Walk will start and finish at Burswood Park on the Swan River. Choose from a family-friendly 6km walk that will cross over the Matagarup Bridge or if you’re looking for a bigger challenge you can take on the 15km walk which will take in the sights of South Perth and Elizabeth Quay. There will be plenty of pit stops and fun along the way and with your support, we can ensure funds raised will help transform the lives of WA sick kids so they can live their healthiest and happiest lives.
Beyond attending events with us, we’re always looking for people to help out before, during and after events of any scale.

Foundation supporter, Tony recently organised a sausage sizzle at Bunnings Mindarie to raise funds for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, something he says just felt like the right thing to do. “Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation is a very worthy cause and my own daughter has spent a good amount of time at the hospital; in my mind
