Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids
There are a number of great local events in Melbourne aimed on fundraising for the local community or other charitable organizations. One such event is the Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids, a running and walking event held every year in Melbourne. Participants in the event can choose to walk or run on a long course track of 15 km or a shorter track of 5.5 km. This popular fundraising event requires participants and spectators to buy tickets and a significant portion of the money raised through the event is then donated to the Good Friday Appeal.
Herald Sun/Citylink Run For The Kids – Melbourne, Australia
This fun run event is one of the biggest fundraising events in Victoria and all donations are sent to the Good Friday Appeal and the Royal Children’s Hospital. Thousands of people participate in the event every year, including runners, families, kids and large corporate groups. Tens of thousands of people participate every year with millions of dollars being raised.
The event provides runners with a choice of the two tracks, with both tracks beginning and ending in King’s Domain at the Royal Botanical Gardens. It is recommended that families and kids choose the shorter 5.5 km, which is designed to be much more family-friendly. The other track is about 15 km and runs from the Domain Tunnel and Bolte Bridge, up along the Docklands track to the Waterfront Promenade. The race starts at a point at Kings Domain near Alexandra Avenue, eventually working back around to the finish line at King’s Domain.
Participants can visit the official website of the Herald Sun/CityLink Run for more information. Online registration for the event is also available.
