Active Buddies

Take part in an active event of your choice and fundraise to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children.

Get started

Join a fun run

From Run Melbourne in Victoria to City2Surf in New South Wales to Point to Pinnacle in Tasmania, there are fun runs all across Australia for you to take part in!

Create your own

Challenge yourself to walk 5km a day for a month, set a daily target of push ups, burpees, stair climbs or star jumps that you can do.

Get sponsored for your efforts by sending your online fundraising page to friends, family and workmates. Get fit in the process, and know that every step you take will be supporting vulnerable children.

It was in 2020 that Silvio participated for the fourth year in Run Melbourne and in that time he’s raised more than $50,000 for the Foundation.

Silvio feels deeply about the Foundation because he remembers the Port Arthur tragedy. “I remember it happening very clearly and it always moved me a great deal. So, when I had the opportunity to meet Walter Mikac at Richmond Football Club’s dedicated match day for the Foundation, it tied everything together for me,” he says.

“Being able to contribute to the Foundation’s Buddy Bags and cyber safety programs means a great deal. For me to be able to play a small part and to be able to contribute to keeping children safe is very rewarding. It’s good for the soul.”
