The 2018 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival is coming to town on Sunday October 14th, and it’s your chance to support JMB Foundation and run for those who can’t. Just register now. Early bird registration closes July 2nd. Many of our supporters have been running every year since JMB Foundation was founded, and many more have joined the JMB Foundation 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 Foundation to work on the course on marathon day, by contributing to the cost of our JMB Foundation 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 Darryn Kearney 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 2018 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 Foundation 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?
