Come and watch people plunge down Central Park
Central Park Plunge - this is such a long way to look down from! It should, however, be very exciting and we will see how fit people are!

Soar to new heights! Registrations are now open for the 2019 Central Park Plunge. This will be held on 13th September 2019 from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm. It is Australia's tallest urban charity abseil!

Central Park is a 51-storey office tower in the city and the building measures 226 metres from the bottom at St Georges Terrace to the roof. It measures 249 metres to the tip of its mast that is flying. It was finished being built in 1992, at which time the tower became the tallest building in Perth.

For this event, you can either register as an individual or in a team of four. There are only 100 spaces available - this is a very popular fundraising event, so move fast! You can register at this link.

The Central Park Plunge is an abseil of 220 metres and this allows the participants to abseil that whole area down Perth's tallest building, Central Park.

Organisers would like to thank your courage, kindness and generosity as you will be helping families who are in the dreadful position of facing childhood illness together! The funds from the abseil will benefit the children and their families staying at Ronald McDonald House.

In 2015, the event raised $525,000 plus.
In 2016, the event raised $535,000 plus.
In 2017, the event raised $573,000 plus.
In 2018, the event raised $532,400p plus bringing the total raised for WA charities to $2,165,400 plus in 4 years!

In 2019m there will be 4 descent ropes making teams of 4 participants ideal to take the plunge.

This is an event that money just cannot buy and you are required to pay an entry fee of $100, plus fundraise a minimum of $1100. The experienced fundraising team from Ronald McDonald House Charities WA will be there to support you. They will be giving you some tips just on how to get to your fundraising goal.

About RMHC Western Australia
When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it usually has a devastating impact on families as well as the child. As well as the uncertainty of what will happen and the fear, there's added stress for families who don't live close to the medical hospital that their child needs. Ronald McDonald House Charities has a large range of programs which help families to stay together. This means that they will all have the support of their loved ones when they need it most.

They are an independent, not-for-profit organisation and are dedicated to providing very important programs for families with seriously ill children.
