2014 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival


Preparations are in full swing for this year’s Medibank Melbourne Marathon, to be held on Sunday 12 October.

Once again the JMB Foundation is an official Associate Charity of the Melbourne Marathon, together with the Cathy Freeman Foundation and the Australian Red Cross.

Last year JMBF supporters who participated in marathon events or volunteered assistance raised almost $70,000 for the Foundation, and the event is our most significant source of funds. We encourage you to get involved again this year. Any amount you raise, no matter how small, will go towards helping to improve quality of life for young people with ABI.

You can register online here to participate in any of the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival events. Don’t forget to join the JMB team when you register, to receive your JMB team t-shirt or singlet to wear on the day.  Once you have registered, start fundraising by setting up your individual fundraising page – and then please join our JMB Foundation fundraising team here.

In our eighth year of collaboration with this event, JMBF will again provide a team of volunteers to assist on the day. If you’re not registering for an event – for whatever reason – but want to help in some way, we would welcome your involvement as a course volunteer. This team is vital to the success of the day, and you can be a part of it no matter what your age or experience. You might be helping out at drink stations, or handing out information. There are volunteer jobs to suit just about anyone – so please get in touch with us if you’re interested in getting involved in any way.

You’ll be helping some of the most disadvantaged young Australians by helping the JMB Foundation. So on Sunday October 12th, run for those who can’t.
