In the Community
“Our Mission; Each year, thousands of Australian children are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Our mission is to create a life-changing wish for every one of them. With 700 kids on a Wish Journey in 2019, every dollar helps grant more wishes, which is why your support is so important.
Make-A-Wish is one of Australia’s most trusted charities and part of largest wish-granting organisation in the world. We are the only registered Australian charity focusing exclusively on wishes. We have been granting wishes in Australia since 1985 – from the very first wish by 16-year old Shawn, who battled Duchenne muscular dystrophy, to see his favourite footy team live in action. More than 30 years on, we’ve granted 10,000 unforgettable wishes all over the country. We've flown kids to the moon, made unicorns fly and helped Australia's youngest ever Cricket Captain don the baggy green.
A wish is not a fleeting gift - each child's Wish Journey is carefully planned and delivered over several stages to create a positive, lasting impact. Wishes are designed to complement a child's medical treatment, working to calm, distract and inspire at a time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible. In this way, wishes deliver both an immediate boost and long lasting effect on the lives of sick kids, their families and communities.
With more than 700 families currently on a Wish Journey, we rely on the generosity and support of our local volunteers, partners and communities to bring wishes to life. Please, help us make a lasting impact by donating, volunteering or supporting us today. Together, we can give seriously ill children the anticipation and legacy of one true wish – helping them discover anything is possible.”
Newman Enduro Club
WATM are proud supporters and participants in the Newman Enduro Club and more specifically their 12 hour Dessert Race.
A extremely well run event, located 42kms south of Newman that sees great involvement from riders from around the east and west Pilbara regions.
WATM has also participated in this event for the previous two years and would like to thank all those involved for not only the way the event is run but also the way the safety of all riders is prioritised.
East Pilbara BMX Club
WATM are proud supports of the East Pilbara BMX club located in Newman WA.
As a business we have always enjoyed participating in the communities that we work in. It is also great to be able to directly see the benefit of our involvement in the level of facilities that the club’s members are able to enjoy.
Thanks for allowing WATM to be involved.
