NEWSLETTER HEADLINE: BALLARAT FOUNDATION ‘RUN FOR A CAUSE’ 2018
NEWSLETTER COPY: ‘Insert school name’ has entered a team into the 2018 Ballarat Foundation Run for a Cause event on Sunday November 18. This year, the event is focussed on raising funds and building awareness of food insecurity in Ballarat and surrounding areas. Last year 12% of Ballarat’s population presented to food charities at least once, and overwhelmingly over 1/3 of those were children.You can participate in the 10km or 5km running events, the 5km family walk or the 1km Golden Nugget Bakery Kids Dash.
When entering, select ‘join team’. Our team name is ‘Insert school name’.
So come along and join us! We are hoping to get as many families as possible to support this great community cause. Our school can also directly benefit with prizes on offer for the schools with the most participants.
