Lace up and run for FARE in the 2024 City2Surf!

Lace up and run for FARE in the 2024 City2Surf!

This August, FARE is participating in Sydney's iconic City2Surf as a charity partner for the very first time!

We’re partnering with City2Surf because we believe in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing – and we know running and walking are fantastic ways to get active and relieve stress.

Why run for FARE in the City2Surf

When you walk, jog or run alongside FARE at City2Surf, you’re not just pounding the pavement on Sydney’s streets – you’re going the extra mile for alcohol harm prevention across Australia. 

We are fundraising for our storytelling project ‘Voices of Change’ which supports Australians to share their experience of alcohol harm to raise awareness and create change.

As a FARE Superstar, you must commit to fundraising at least $1,000. Superstars get many perks like free entry, a special Charity Superstar medal and some cool FARE merchandise. Fill out this simple form to apply.

Hear from our Voices of Change

Over the past two years, we’ve shared dozens of stories from a diverse range of people across the country about the role of alcohol in their lives.

They have spoken up to let other people know that they are not alone, to foster new conversations and to break down the invisible barriers of stigma and shame, so people can reach out and seek support.

Donations big or small help FARE level the playing field.

FARE welcomes companies and other organisations who want to support employees in City2Surf.

Get a team together, ask your company to sponsor or match donations, and you’ll be making an enormous contribution to creating an Australia free from alcohol harms.

We’ll be documenting our team’s progress in the months leading up to race day across all of our social media channels. 

Stay tuned for updates as we inch closer to our fundraising goal, hear insights from our City2Surf community, and get immersed in the excitement around FARE’s first fun run!

Together, we can run towards a future where all Australians are free from alcohol harms.

Creating a City2Surf running crew full of family or friends is a terrific way to keep yourself motivated and accountable while training and on race day.
