Thinking of entering a fitness challenge event this year?

You can challenge yourself and have fun raising funds for Asthma WA. Every year we have wonderful supporters who raise funds by participating in fitness challenge events. They are people like you, who want there to be zero deaths from asthma in WA.  Currently 26 people a year die from asthma in WA – that’s one every two weeks.

Asthma WA educates and empowers West Australians to manage their asthma and respiratory health.  Did you know that 1 in 10 people have asthma in Australia? That’s over 2.5 million people.

You can participate in any event you like. Simply choose and register for your event, then set up an Everyday Hero online fundraising page with Asthma WA as your charity. Next, spread the word about what you’re doing and why, and ask people you know to support  you and the asthma cause–it’s that easy!

Some popular events include:


Choose Asthma WA as your reason and then choose the 4km, 12km, and half marathon (21km) and walk or ride your way to fundraising glory.  This run traditionally has over 35,000 people running the streets of Perth every August.


Since 1975 the Perth City to Surf has ebb an important part of the running calendar.  In an early show of support for equality, both men and women participated and the wheelchair event was added in 1983. The 12km course has remained essentially the same since the very beginning when it started on St Georges Tce in Perth CBD, to Jubilee Park in City Beach.

It’s grown from the hero event in Perth, to a regional series adding Albany, Busselton, Geraldton and Karratha, making it the most community-based fun run in Australia.
