This Christmas, will YOU join Little Athletics NSW 
and Be a Santa for Sick Kids?

For most kids, Christmas is a time for toys and fun.

For the seriously ill and injured children staying at Ronald McDonald House, they just want their families close as they battle childhood diseases, illnesses and injuries. 

It costs Ronald McDonald House Charities $160 per night to support one family with a sick or injured child. 

To give back this Christmas, Little Athletics NSW has a goal to raise 100 nights of support for kids undergoing life-saving treatment this Christmas.

We are calling on our LANSW Family to Be a Santa for Sick Kids
this Christmas and help us achieve our goal!

Meet some of our brave and courageous kids who need a Santa this Christmas.


In January, this year, four-year-old Rylan was diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer.

Rylan has spent 205 nights in Ronald McDonald House and will spend the next 6 months enduring intensive chemotherapy, and a further 18 months having oral chemotherapy.


Millie has already survived multiple open heart surgeries. She was diagnosed with Complex Congenital Heart Disease.

In January 2020, Millie suffered a cardiac arrest. It took 6 minutes of CPR to revive her.

Millie's family has stayed at Ronald McDonald House for 261 nights, to be close to their daughter's bedside when things go wrong.

Rebecca and Kristine

12-year-old Rebecca (left) was born with a cleft palate and fusion of the skull. Her younger sister, Kristine (right), was also born with fusion of the skull.

Since 2009, at least four times a year, their family has had to travel over 500kms to attend specialist hospital appointments in Brisbane.

For these brave sisters, having a home away from home at Ronald McDonald house has been life-changing.


  Each year over 2,100 families with a seriously ill or injured child will be supported by Ronald McDonald House Greater Western Sydney.

Watch this video to hear from some of the families that support like yours will continue to help.
