* Run For The Kids 2019 *
The 14th edition of Victoria's most loved fun run the Herald Sun / CityLink Run for the Kids will take place on Sunday 7th April 2019. The Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids is a community event and its primary aim is to raise funds for the 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. 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. Join in Victoria's biggest fun run and make a difference to our sick and most vulnerable kids by raising funds for The Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal. Entries for the 2019 event will open at midday on Monday, January 14, 2019.
