Run Geelong is 100% for kids health!

The Barwon Health Foundation and Cotton On Group have worked in tandem for the past seven years, through the efforts of Run Geelong, to raise much-needed funds for the Children’s Ward.

Since 2009, the partnership has seen the completion of the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward and the redevelopment of the Special Care Nursery and Maternity Day Assessment Unit, with over $3.07 million in donations going to the hospital.

In 2017, Run Geelong will raise funds for a brand new rehabilitation centre for Geelong children and youth. This exciting new project will only be possible with local support and will be fully funded by the community, with 100% of your Run Geelong registration fee going straight to this incredible cause.

Run Geelong will be held Sunday 19 November, register here or see the Run Geelong crew on game day!





If you’re at the game on Saturday night, look out for the Run Geelong crew located at the Legends Plaza, Players Stand Concourse and Polly Farmer gate! Simply by registering for Run Geelong (19 November 2017), you will go into the draw to win the ultimate training session with Joel Selwood.
