THE 2019 CAUSE

Run for a Cause 2019, will be raising funds and awareness for charities supporting early childhood to help young children start school ready to prosper.

According to recent AEDC data, nearly one in five children in the Ballarat area start school developmentally vulnerable. Children who are vulnerable face significant challenges long term. These areas include physical, social & emotional aspects, language, cognitive & communication skills, & general knowledge.

FUNDRAISING

A critical component of the fundraising effort is participants’, schools, & businesses reaching out to family, friends, & networks asking for donations to support your efforts. We have made this process very easy via our event fundraising platform, GoFundraise. Prizes are on offer for individuals who can raise the most money. 

Individual Prizes

1st: Brooks Shoes plus $100 Billys Bistro Voucher and $100 Golden Nugget Voucher.
