Run for a Cause

The Ballarat Foundation’s Run for a Cause is the largest mass participation fun run/walking event in the region. This year the event will be held in November and will once again include a 10km, 5km and kids 1km distance. The event is held at Victoria Park

Due to COVID restrictions, our 2021 Run for a Cause was a virtual event. It boasted around 150 participants running and walking their way around Ballarat to raise funds for the Back to School Voucher Program. 

With the support of our major sponsor, Federation University, our community impact partner, Heinz Law, generous donations from the community and grants from The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, we were able to raise a total of $54,000 equating to 1080 vouchers for local families doing it tough.
