$1.4 Million raised by 2018 Run for the Kids

18th March, 2018

The Good Friday Appeal wants to extend a huge thank you to all the participants and their supporters who came out to support the Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids.

Over 23,000 people participated in Victoria’s favourite fun run! We are so grateful to the incredible sponsors and partners of this event – Event Partners Herald Sun and CityLink, Corporate sponsors Mazda, Nike, City of Melbourne, The Athlete’s Foot and Metro, and Media partners Nova 100 and Channel 7.

We extend a special thanks Transurban CityLink  who closed both the Domain Tunnel and the Bolte Bridge for the race, providing our runners with a once a year opportunity to experience a truly unique course!

With your donations, as well as the very generous support from major Run for the Kids sponsor Transurban CityLink, we were able to raise $1.4 million dollars! That brings the total fundraising efforts for Run for the Kids over the past 13 years to $17 million dollars raised for The Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

Although Run for the Kids has come to an end for another year, you can still donate to the Good Friday Appeal by clicking the donate tab at the top of this page.
