The 2017 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival is coming to town on Sunday October 15th, and it’s your chance to support JMB and run for those who can’t. Just register now. Early bird registration closes June 30th. Many of our supporters have been running every year since JMB was founded, and many more have joined the JMB team along the way. We are very grateful for the contributions of so many, whether it has been by sweating it out in a marathon event, by sponsoring friends, by volunteering for JMB to work on the course on marathon day, by contributing to the cost of our JMB team singlets, or by helping with the organisation of the event. We hope you know who you are!
Fundraising from this event is the cornerstone of JMB’s grants program, allowing us to help people like Holli Bryceland and many other young Australians who need our financial assistance. We wish it wasn’t so, but the demand for funds to help these young people access care and therapy is growing. So let’s make our 2017 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival our biggest and best yet.
There are five distances to choose from, and you can even walk for those who can’t. Sign up now and don’t forget to start a fundraising page so your mates can sponsor you. We’ll give you a JMB shirt to run (or walk) in, so you’ll be helping to raise awareness as well as funds. If running’s not your thing, why not volunteer as a course marshal?
