About Maddie's Match

Celebrating the life of Maddie Riewoldt

Maddie was a passionate Saints supporter and loved nothing more than to watch her big brother Nick and cousin Jack fighting it out on the footy oval. 

Since 2015, St Kilda hosts Maddie’s Match in a classic St Kilda v Richmond game to raise awareness and funds for Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.

Your support has helped us to #FightLikeMaddie to find new treatments and better support options for patients and families.

Maddie Riewoldt - The legacy of a determined young woman

Maddie Riewoldt was just 26 years old when she died of complications of a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome called Aplastic Anaemia. She was diagnosed at 21 years and for five tough years, she put up a brave fight. 

She spent those years enduring several bone marrow transplants, hundreds of blood transfusions and ongoing treatments.

Throughout her life and prior to her diagnosis, Maddie was known a talented sportswoman, passionate about Soccer, Cricket, surf lifesaving and AFL. 

Maddie was fiercely devoted and loyal to her family (and dog, Oscar) and asked them to make her a promise when her fight was ending in February, 2015.

Maddie's Vision is her legacy.
