Sharing is caring!

We are just over the midway point of the virtual Run for a Cause event. For the month of November, participants are recording the distance they are walking, running and rolling in an attempt to reach 50,000 kms collectively. And as a community, we are trying to match the distance travelled by raising $50,000. Its an ambitious goal so we need everyone’s help!

How we are tracking…

There are 147 people registered to participate and so far 6,740kms have been completed and $18,799 raised. The top fundraisers are Federation University in the team category and Gabriele Suder as the top fundraiser as an individual. Elisa Zentveld has run an astonishing 460km so far in an awesome effort to contribute to the distance travelled goal.

Keep up the good work – there are prizes up for grabs!

It may seem like our goals are out of reach, but keep up the good work Ballarat! We know we can make it if we work together as a community to reach our goal. Don’t forget that there are prizes up for grabs. We’re giving 2 Showbiz Cinemas Ballarat Movie Vouchers to the first 50 individuals who raise over $100! We’re also giving out prizes for those who raise the most money for kids in need in our community. The highest fundraiser will receive 10 x Showbiz Cinemas Ballarat Movie Tickets and the highest fundraising Team will receive a Group Screening at Showbiz Cinemas Ballarat.

Be a local hero!

All funds raised go towards the FRRR Back to School Voucher program. Back to School Vouchers help struggling families provide uniforms, school shoes, stationary and other school equipment to their kids. This in turn has a lasting impact not only on their education but on their social and emotional wellbeing.

The more money we raise, the more vouchers we can give to families in need. Last year, demand far exceeded supply and this demand keeps growing. Please help us ensure that no child misses out on the help they need.

Thank you!

A big shout out to the fabulous sponsors of the event – Federation University Australia, Showbiz Cinemas, Heinz Law, McGrath Ballarat and Bosch Service Centre – Mr Brakes.
