parkrun Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides free, weekly, timed 5km running/walking events to communities across Australia. parkrun events are inclusive, welcoming people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels. The weekly format encourages people to commit to regular physical activity. parkrun events also promote positive mental health and wellbeing through building community and social connectedness. Coordinated entirely by volunteers and 100% free to participants, parkrun events remove the cost barriers often associated with organised activity and participating in sport.
parkrun is a great pathway for participants to transition in and out of physical activity by providing an inclusive environment to build fitness, get active and be outdoors.
With no membership or weekly fees, parkrun Australia relies on sponsorship income to fund its operating costs. And these funds don’t cover the full costs associated with starting new events.
This campaign is to raise $2,000 to purchase a defib for Shiraz Trail parkrun. Once launched, there will be NO additional charges for participants, the event team or funding bodies for the lifetime of the event, and another community will have access to a free weekly event where they can run, walk or volunteer.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Please make a donation and help us to launch Shiraz Trail parkrun.
