The Sally Fitzgibbons Foundation has smashed it’s 500,000KM Challenge target in record time, so now we’re raising the bar even further by going for the magical MILLION km mark! The challenge is the first of its type in Australia. Runners of all abilities have been busy donating their KMs to the Sally Fitzgibbons Foundation and on hitting 500,000KMs a donation of $100,000 cash was released to the Foundation. This money will be used to help tackle one of the biggest health crises of our time – child obesity.
Help us to try to raise even more funds as we raise the target to 1 million kilometres. It’s free and easy to get involved and every kilometre helps!
How it works
It costs you nothing and is very simple: just connect your favourite fitness tracking app, gps watch or connected device to our 1,000,000km Challenge on our Running Heroes page.
Then, each km you run is combined with all our Challenge members daily runs to chase down the 1,000,000 kilometre target.
Our awesome partners Novotel, Blue Dinosaur and CoCo Joy have already contributed a $100,000 cash donation to the Foundation and now we’re trying to raise even more!
How good is that? You can change somebody else’s life on your morning run!
So it doesn’t matter if you’re a marathon runner or just starting out as a walker. We can all make a difference.
