Ronald McDonald House Charities WA announced that a team of 20 cyclists raised more than $220,000 for this year's Ride for Sick Kids WA.

From May 4 to 7, riders navigated 387 kilometres of terrain through the rugged Northern Wheatbelt region, which included Busselton McDonald's owner John Frankham.

Over the four days, the cyclists made their way from Kalamunda to Perth where the ride reached the finish line at McDonald's High Wycombe.

Since the inaugural ride across WA in 2012, more than 2,800km have been travelled, raising more than $2.5 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities WA.

Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home-away-from-home for regional WA families, allowing them to stay close to their sick or injured child while they receive treatment in nearby hospitals.

Last year, Ronald McDonald House Charities WA provided more than 16,000 nights of accommodation to more than 1,450 families.

RHMC WA would like to say a big thank you to the local community for their support and donations.
