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 $5,000, 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.

  2. Share your page with friends, family & colleagues. We know that together, with people-power, we’ll be able to make a lasting difference.
