Run for Charity

Fundraise with Everyday Hero


Run for the good times and support a charity of your choice. The 2016 event was a huge success as runners enjoyed the opportunity to get outdoors, challenge themselves and raise funds for their chosen charity. Nearly $400,000 was raised!

Take up the challenge in 2017 and run for a cause. The official charity for the 12th consecutive year is Cancer Council Queensland so you may wish to join its supporters to help create a cancer-free future.

By choosing to be ‘Active for Cancer’, you will be supporting a great cause, reducing your own risk of cancer, and raising much-needed funds for cancer research, patient support services and education programs.
