Maddie Riewoldt's Vision


Ride to create a brighter future for patients living with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.

United Energy Around the Bay is proud to support our official charity partner, Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision.

Founded in honour of Maddie Riewoldt, who was just 26 years old when she tragically died from a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome, Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision funds vital research that accelerates diagnosis and treatments, while supporting patients and their families with counselling, education and resources.

Every 3 days an Australian is diagnosed with a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome. Distressingly, most are children and young adults, and 50% will not survive. Thousands more are living with complex medical issues and ongoing risks to their health.

By fundraising for Maddie’s Vision you’re helping fund research that will result in faster diagnosis, better treatments, tailored support and improved outcomes for patients and families impacted by Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.
