Media Release - 24 July 2018


 First National Real Estate has confirmed its sponsorship of Ronald McDonald House Charities’  2018 Ride   for Sick Kids in South Australia as part of its overall national community support programme.
 The ride fundraises in support of Ronald McDonald Houses in Adelaide as well as the Ronald McDonald   Learning Program.

 ‘First National Real Estate is proud to have contributed more than $300,000 to the Ride for Sick Kids     nationally over the past four years, and we’re delighted to continue this support’ said First National Real   Estate Copley principal, Jeff.
 ‘Our SA members are rallying behind the 2018 ride and looking forward to building upon community   awareness of this vital programme that supports kids and their families during the most difficult of health   challenges’.
 The South Australian ride starts in Port Lincoln on 18 November before traveling over 1,000 kilometres to   Adelaide where it finishes on the 24th.
 Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation and support services to seriously ill children and their
families nationally. Its services lift the burden of accommodation costs from families when they most need to provide their children with love and support.
‘When children are seriously ill and need medical care a long way from home, regional families can struggle with access to long-term accommodation and its costs’ said Jeff.
‘By sponsoring the Ride for Sick Kids and helping raise awareness of the excellent work done by Ronald McDonald House, we’re helping secure this important accommodation resource’.

‘As Australia’s leading network of real estate agents, we’re committed to supporting South Australia’s community on a range of fronts’ said First National’s South Australia Chairman, Mr David Nitschke.

We look forward to working with their team to provide opportunities for budding netballers to attend Adelaide Thunderbirds game to see their idols play and improve their netball skills at the regional clinics.”
