Melbourne: Run 4 Refugees 2015

18 October 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Run 4 Refugees 2015 is here!
Run 4 Refugees is our major fundraising event for the year and we’d love for you to take part.

Last year we had over 500 amazing people who ran and walked for refugees, and raised over $250,000. This year we’re aiming to raise over $300,000.

The main event will be taking place in Melbourne on Sunday October 18th as part of the Melbourne Marathon Festival. However, there are lots of other runs around Australia on various dates if you can’t make it to Melbourne in October.

Melbourne, Sunday 18th October
It’s 12 weeks to until we strap on our runners and run, walk or crawl our way around the streets of Melbourne while raising much needed funds to support the ASRC.

You don’t need to be a serious runner to take part, there are distances to suit everyone- from 3km to the full marathon.
