Eight McDonald’s restaurants in the Illawarra will be hosting fundraisers for Woonona girl Chloe Saxby next Tuesday evening.

Seven-year-old Chloe has Vanishing White Matter Disease, a rare and degenerative brain disease for which there is currently no cure.

Chloe’s parents Grant and Nyree last year launched a campaign to raise $2.6 million for vital research into the condition, which has since gained global attention.

To boost the campaign, the eight restaurants (Albion Park, Dapto, Fairy Meadow, Figtree, Warrawong, Warilla, Wollongong and Woonona) will host a family fun night between 6-8pm on Tuesday.

Activities will include facepainting and giveaways, while 10 per cent of sales will go towards the campaign.

Chloe was diagnosed with the condition at the age of three, when she lost the use of her legs overnight. The condition has a life expectancy of just five to 10 years from disease onset.
