Run 4 Refugees

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is pleased to announce registrations for their annual fundraiser, Run 4 Refugees, are now open.

What: Run 4 Refugees is part of the Melbourne Marathon

When: Sunday, October 9, 2011

How: Visit to register to run – or walk!

Participants are asked to seek sponsorship to raise funds. Once registered, you will be issued with a personal fundraising page to share with your friends. This year the page has even more features, such as uploading photos and linking directly to your facebook.  

Why: All money raised  goes towards helping asylum seekers, a largely neglected group in Australia with little or no income, seeking access to essential health, welfare or legal services.

Why your support is important
This is the Centre’s big fundraiser for the year and they desperately need your support.  The ASRC is facing  the toughest of times with demands for help at an all time high and the political climate at an all time low.

It is so easy to be involved
You can nominate a distance that suits you – from 3km to a 5, 10, 21 or 42km run or walk.  Kids are also encouraged to get involved!           

You will also get a fantastic fairwear Run for Refugees T - Shirt for running or walking if you raise over $50. Just let  ASRC know your t - shirt size when you register (remember sizes are unisex and are large).

We look forward to running for refugees with you on October 9th!
