Run for the Kids

Event Date - Sunday 7th April 2019

The Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids is one of Victoria’s most loved events. And for the first time ever has joined Register Now for its registration software management! 

We are very excited to welcome the Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids to the Register Now community!  

This event is a major community event, with it's primary aim being to raise funds for the Victorian Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

The Herald and Weekly Times, through its flagship newspaper, the Herald Sun, has had a long and proud association with the Good Friday Appeal. The Appeal originated in 1931 when a group of Herald and Weekly Times’ employees got together with sports officials to run a sports carnival that raised money for the hospital, then struggling in the grip of the Great Depression.

After a spectacular debut in 2006, the Herald Sun | CityLink Run for the Kids has grown to one of Victoria’s largest mass-participation fun runs with participants experiencing a tremendous thrill running over a great course for a great cause.

The event is proud of its position as the single biggest fundraising contributor for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. To date the event has raised over $17.1 million dollars for the Appeal.

The Royal Children’s Hospital improves the health and well being of children and adolescents through leadership in healthcare, research and education. Nearly all families come into direct contact with the work of the hospital at some stage, either through the care of their own children or through friends or family. It is a great children’s hospital that leads the way, and we are thankful for the 30,000+ runners who hit the streets of Melbourne each year to support this important cause by running for the kids.

Register Now is so proud to be associated with this event and we look forward to coming into contact with many of the wonderful participants of this event along their registration journey.  Our collaboration with Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids has allowed our client to implement:
