At Home Fun Run 2020
Families across the nation will raise heart rates and funds for Australian children living in poverty who are further disadvantaged by COVID-19, with the inaugural At Home Fun Run held on Friday 12 June 2020.
Home Fun Run has a dual mission; funds raised will help connect Australian children living in poverty with remote learning opportunities through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program, as well as brightening Christmas for thousands of families by donating toys to their Toy & Book Appeal.
The campaign was founded when School Fun Run Director Brendan Hopp saw an opportunity to repurpose their fundraising vehicle to battle the economic impacts of COVID-19, while also giving families a fun physical activity to achieve together at home.
The Home Fun Run encourages families to get creative with a fun obstacle course in their backyard to raise funds for The Smith Family, and promote some healthy activity while kids are at home.
70% of the funds raised will go towards remote learning resources and the remaining 30% to be donated in the form of toys to The Smith Family’s Christmas Toy and Book Appeal.
How it Works:
1. Go to the link below and register your family.
2. Share your fundraising link with your friends and family – everyone that donates over $2 will receive a tax-deductible receipt immediately.
3. Create your At Home Fun Run course. Use your backyard, inside your house, or both. Create an awesome obstacle course with your kids and have fun running it. Don’t worry, they’ll help out with some ideas, but you can do ANYTHING you want to – just make it SAFE & FUN.
4. Have a special day with your family on or around 12 June 2020. Enjoy the knowledge that thousands of other Australians will be doing the same.
