About the Red Wig Challenge

What is the Red Wig Challenge?

Ronald McDonald House Charities ACT & SE NSW runs a Red Wig Challenge every year, encouraging the community to get active and raise funds for families with seriously ill children.

This year, you are invited to participate in a virtual Red Wig Challenge - set your own goal, create your page, get active, and encourage your mates to support you by donating money to our charity! 

Help us raise $13,200 in October - the cost of 100 nights of accommodation for our families, as we celebrate the charity's 10th Birthday in Canberra!

How do I participate?

Visit our Registration page to sign up. Join in the fun as an individual or team. Record your kilometres and get raising money! Support seriously ill children and their families. Spread the word!

We'll send you a red wig when you sign up - don't forget to take photos/videos and share them with us by tagging Ronald McDonald House Charities ACT & SE NSW social media handles, and using the hashtags #10YearsofRMHC and #RedWigWalkForKids. 

Where can I walk?

You can walk, run or glide... anywhere you like! How you record your activity is up to you, whether it's at work, outside or at the gym. You can walk around your block, on the treadmill or even just at the park. Your #RedWigWalkForKids will help us raise money and celebrate #10YearsofRMHC, keeping families close.

How do I sign up as a team?

 It is easy to register, select, create, and join a team. Just think of a fun team name, start recruiting your team members and get moving for a common cause.

On the Registration page, follow the instructions on screen, and choose if you would like to create or join a team within the form. 

How do people support me? 

When signing up, create your fundraising page. This is your space to show off your goal, your progress, and your passion for the cause. Share the URL to your fundraising page with your friends and family, ask them to show their support by donating to you or the team on your fundraising page. They can also donate directly if they wish to. 

Where do the raised funds go?

Ronald McDonald House Charities ACT & SE NSW helps children in hospital and their families with accommodation and support services. We enable families to stay close to each other, relax and recharge, have access to food, catch up on missed learning and more. 

All funds raised will be used to help families with seriously ill or injured children in the ACT & SE NSW region with the vital RMHC Programs.
