The Winning Edge

Finish on a HIGH with the awesome team at Winning Edge Academy as you make your way through their mini obstacle course. And hey guess what? The Stitches’ Bear Fair is only a few hundred metres away!

Why walk?

Tens of thousands of Western Australian children visit PMH every year – children like Olivia, who had surgery to remove a large brain tumour at the age of 8, and is now working with the hospital’s rehabilitation team to help her prepare for her return to school.

The money you raise for the Big Walk for PMH will make sure children like Olivia receive the best care possible so they have the chance to live their happiest and healthiest life.
