Donations

CarevanLogoThe primary intent of these events is to get “more people moving more often”, not raise money for charity. As such, entry fees are kept low but with the services and inclusions of the much larger commercial events.

In 2018 however we will be collecting donations for the Leukaemia Foundation and the Carevan Foundation.  We believe that each of these are terrific organisations providing a range of good outcomes for our communities.  We will also continue to support a large range of diverse community groups and organisations.  More details of the Leukaemia Foundation and Carevan.
