Join Team VACCA in Run Melbourne, on the morning of Sunday 26 July 2020, and help support Aboriginal children in care and in our programs.

There are more than 2,000 Aboriginal children in Victoria in care who need our support throughout the year. Your help will connect kids to their Culture, Elders and mentors in the local community through our Cultural Programs. Every dollar raised will help Aboriginal children in care grow up strong and proud.

Run Melbourne is a fun, all abilities event and is a great way to challenge yourself, have fun and even get your workplace, friends and family involved!

When: Sunday, 26 July 2020

Where: Starting at Federation Square and finishing at Birrarung Marr

Levels: 5km (run, walk or roll); 10km, or half marathon

For every $50 you raise, you will help provide an opportunity for an Aboriginal child in care to join in our Cultural Programs like our Art Mentoring, Cultural Camps and other Cultural Programs. If you are able to raise $100 or more, you can have a VACCA running singlet - limited stock available!

Thank you for showing your support for Aboriginal children in care.
