Run for charity

Run with your team and help make a difference!

Fundraising has never been easier! In 2014, we raised an incredible $2 million for charitable organisations, this year we hope to raise even more. Learn how you can help us make a difference and run for FREE!

Making a difference is easy!

When registering for your chosen event, simply select one of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival’s partner charities from the drop down menu and GoFundraise, our fundraising provider, will setup your fundraising page for you. GoFundraise provides charities and not-for-profit organisations with an effective platform to help event participants fundraise online.

Within a week of registering you will receive an email with information on your personalised fundraising page from GoFundraise. On activation you will receive a confirmation email containing your personal login details and password.

From here you can further personalise your fundraising page, include your personal stories, upload images and link to your social networking websites. Once your page has been activated you will be able to email and share your personal fundraising page link with your friends, family and colleagues and ask them to support your cause by donating online.

If you would like to setup your fundraising page right away, please visit here and click ‘start fundraising’. Remember the fundraising page needs to be setup under the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival event.

Fundraising as a team!

If you’re entering the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival as a team, you can also fundraise as a team! This means that donations can be made to both individuals directly or the team collectively. Each individual will still need to create an individual page to join the team. Fundraisers can join your team via the ‘Join this Team’ tab that will appear on your team page, or can be invited by the individual whom sets up the Team page via email. For more information on creating and joining a team page, please click here.

Run for Charity and run for FREE!

To be eligible to run for free simply commit to raising the dedicated fundraising target for your event through GoFundraise as an individual fundraiser. Once you have registered to run in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and you have reached the fundraising target as listed below for that particular event, you can follow the easy steps to claim your rebate on entry fee. The fundraising targets and the ‘Run for a Cause Run for free’ initiative have been agreed upon by our partnering charities and must be claimed before October 8, 2015.

If you’re having difficulty claiming your rebate, please contact the GoFundraise support team here. Please be aware that Rebates must be claimed on or before October 8, 2015. The rebate will then be processed between October 9, 2015 and January 22, 2016 through the GoFundraise website.

All fundraisers will need to make payment for their actual event entry before they can claim the rebate. The rebate may only be claimed by the person or organisation that paid the entry fee. The rebate can only be received once per individual, team pages are not eligible for the rebate & donations made directly to the team page do not count towards rebate total for individuals.
