October 2021

Run for a Cause is back this November!

This year’s Run will be a virtual, online event, with community members encouraged to sign up to help achieve the community goal of running or walking 50,000km during November to raise $50,000 funds for Back to School vouchers which will help buy stationary, books and shoes for school children who are doing it tough. The Back to School vouchers program is an initiative of the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) and is administered locally by the Ballarat Foundation.

Back to School Vouchers provide more than just money. They allow struggling families to provide clothing, resources and equipment to their kids, having 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.

Run, ride or walk to help us reach our target of travelling 50,000 kilometres to raise $50,000!

Be a local hero and get active this November for the Federation University Run for a Cause virtual challenge.

We’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $50,000 which will allow us to deliver 1000 Back to School Vouchers to local families doing it tough. But we need your help! Create a profile, set your goal, log your distance as you go and, most importantly, raise funds to help local kids.
