Whether you’re down to tackle the Mini Climb or the gruelling Multi Climb, you’ll be making a difference worth breaking a sweat for. So, why not sign up today?

What is MSWA Step Up?

The family-friendly event calls for participants to scale the iconic Central Park, all while raising vital funds to support MSWA’s essential services. Every dollar makes a huge difference, through providing support, funding research, and helping West Australians with neurological conditions live their version of best. The event isn’t merely a physical feat, but an opportunity for individuals and teams to make a substantial impact while pushing personal boundaries. 

Climbing for a cause

Over the past 17 years of Step Up, more than 12,200 climbers have fundraised over $2.3 million for MSWA. These funds go towards:

  • Helping MSWA provide a range of support and care services to people living with neurological conditions, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and in-home care. 
  • Purchase state-of-the-art equipment for people living with neurological conditions to use, at both MSWA-owned facilities and other health facilities around the state. 
  • Build high-support accommodation and respite facilities in various locations around WA. 
  • Fund vital research into finding the causes, better treatments, and cures for neurological conditions.

Four distinct climbs

With four distinct climbs to choose from, the MSWA Step Up event caters to people of all ages, abilities, and fitness levels. Whether you’re a seasoned stair-climbing enthusiast or a first-timer, there’s a climb tailored to your comfort and challenge levels.

Mini Climb — 477 stairs (22 flights)

If you’re keen to get involved in all the fun but daunted by the idea of climbing all the stairs, this one’s for you. The Mini Climb is a great way to ease yourself into the event, while still feeling the exhilaration of crossing the finish line at the top of Central Park! All children — six years and over — must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the climb.

Prices start at $17.50.

One Up — all the stairs once

Climb all the stairs of Central Park, and experience the reward and exhilaration when you triumphantly cross the finish line. You’ll feel on top of the world as you enjoy the stunning view over Perth.

Prices start at $27.50.

Double Up — all the stairs twice

As the name suggests, the Double Up challenge involves climbing all of the Central Park stairs not once, but twice. There will be an hour between start times, meaning the quicker you climb the stairs the first time, the longer you have to recover until you get to do it all over again!

Prices start at $32.50.

Multi Climb — you tell us how many

If you want to take your Central Park stair climb to the next level, the Multi Climb is the perfect challenge. You can nominate how many times you want to attempt to conquer all the stairs to the top of Central Park. Whether it’s three times, four, or even more — it’s completely up to you.

Prices start at $37.50.
