Run to Save

Do you love to run? Want to make a difference to vulnerable children's lives? Run to Save!

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

Every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. Sadly, for many children this is not the case. You can change this.

Enter an existing running event, such as Run Melbourne or City2Surf, or an event of your choice and create your own individual fundraising page. It's your chance to challenge yourself and to help children who live in the most challenging circumstances.

Run to Save – join Team Save the Children today!
