OUR FIRST FUNDRAISER - CITY2SURF
We are currently recruiting team members for our very first City2Surf fun run!
Taking place in Sydney on Sunday, August 11, the course stretches 14km starting from Hyde park in Sydney’s CBD and ending at the iconic Bondi Beach. You can stroll or sprint… everyone is welcome :)
By contributing towards our fundraising goal of $10,000, together we’ll be able to support our very first Head Start Homes family out of community housing and into their own home. This will free the way for a family currently experiencing homelessness to gain a safe and secure social housing home. All donations to our work will achieve this multiplier impact of reducing poverty and homelessness.
Please follow this link to join the team and create your own unique fundraising page.
Share your page with friends, family & colleagues. We know that together, with people-power, we’ll be able to make a lasting difference.
Don’t forget to register yourself in the event at www.city2surf.com.au and select Head Start Homes as your team. You do not need to select a charity in the registration process (HSH is not listed there - simply use your unique page from Step 1 above to complete all fundraising).
We can’t wait to see you on Sunday, August 11! If there’s anything we can do to help your personal fundraising efforts please get in touch by emailing email@example.com or calling Ph 0416 196 912.
