Why join an event with Make-A-Wish Australia?

By joining one of our charity fundraising events, you’ll be helping towards granting life-long wishes for critically ill children and their families - helping them see a brighter future while in their treatment and recovery journey.

For more than 35 years, we’ve worked with Wish families to understand the best ways to provide positive and rewarding experiences for critically ill children in need - meaning each Wish is ensured to make a positive and impacting difference to their lives, in the way they’ve dreamed of or wished for.

Alongside this, our growing body of international research shows that wishes work to complement a child’s medical treatment, giving sick kids greater strength and hope for their future. You can learn more on Why Wishes Matter.

But that’s not all. By joining a Make-A-Wish Australia charity event, you can also come away from the experience by gaining:

  1. Friendships and connections with like-minded people: Our events can be a great opportunity to meet new people who share your passion for helping children in need.
  1. Personal Growth: Whether it’s pushing yourself outside your comfort zone or simply trying something new, our charity events are a great way to better yourself in a rewarding and positive way.

  2. Fun and Fulfilling Memories: Whether you’re participating solo or getting your friends and family involved, our charity events are guaranteed to let you come away with long-lasting fun memories you’ll cherish for years to come.

How to Join an Event at Make-A-Wish Australia

Joining an event with Make-A-Wish Australia is easy and can be done online within a few minutes. See the steps below to see what to expect:

  1. Choose your charity event: With a range of fun charity events to choose from, deciding on which is the hardest part! All our events will have their own dedicated event page on our website, where you can find details such as location, date, and where to sign up or register online.
  2. Register Your Interest or Sign Up: If you’re an early bird keen to register for a charity event later in the year, you can register your interest and be placed on our waitlist, where we’ll provide you with further info once it’s closer to the date. Otherwise you’ll have the option to sign up directly and be guided through the steps.
  3. Start Fundraising: Once everything is set up, the fun part begins! Start fundraising by spreading the word to your friends and family. You’ll also be able to track the progress of your fundraising efforts on our Make-A-Wish Fundraising platform, plus also see others in the community fundraising just like you.
  4. Attend and Have Fun: Attend the event, have a fantastic time, and know that you're helping make a child's wish come true. Get others involved as the saying goes, the more the merrier. Feel free to share your experience with us as well via socials, email, or even spread the word in-person to family and friends.
