Run to save

Take pride in your stride.

Every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. You can take steps to help make this a reality.

If you want to make a difference to children's lives and you love to run (…or at least cope with it), this is your chance to sweat without regret! 

Here's your challenge

Join Team Save the Children and help raise money for our programs to assist children in Australia and overseas. 

There are two easy ways to join Team Save the Children. Either enter an existing running event - such as Run Melbourne or City2Surf – or create your own fitness challenge.  

No matter your level of fitness or experience in running marathons you can join Team Save the Children. From a 5km Colour Run to a full 42km marathon, there’s an event near you.

Alternatively, you can create your own fitness challenge. Or set yourself a challenge such as running 5km every day for a month, swimming 10 laps every day or creating a fun run for all your friends and family to join in on!

Whatever way you choose to Run to Save, it's the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself while helping children around the world to have happy, healthy lives.

Your next steps could be towards a better world for children.
