Raising as many dollars to combat food insecurity in the Ballarat region is the major goal of Run for a Cause 2018.

We will achieve that by aiming for over 5,000 participants and raising money through entry fees and sponsor support. However an even more critical component of the fundraising effort will be participants’, schools, & businesses reaching out to family, friends, & networks to raise as much money as possible via the event fundraising platform;

In addition to the FREE^ Steigen socks, and as a further sign of goodwill to people who register, one of our key partners Golden Nugget Bakery are offering $10 Vouchers* until Friday 19th October to everyone who links their Run for a Cause registration account with a ‘Go Fundraise’ page and raises their first ten dollars. This can easily be done when you are prompted after registering, or, if you have already registered simply login to your Register Now account and follow the process to link with Go Fundraise.


Simply link your accounts, raise your first ten dollars, and redeem a $10 voucher*. It’s that easy.

Major prizes are also on offer for individuals and teams who can raise the most money.

How do I receive voucher?
After your first ten dollars is raised, our Run for a Cause team will make contact with you directly to arrange for voucher to be sent or picked up.
