AUSSIE SCHOOL KIDS RUN 18 LAPS AROUND THE WORLD IN ONE YEAR!
Nature’s Way Kids Smart is pleased to be partnering with Australia’s foremost school fundraising initiative, School Fun Run, that is revolutionizing the way schools raise extra funds. Nature’s Way Kids Smart is Australia’s largest kids’ vitamin brand and School Fun Run engages over 360,000 school kids nationally, to participate each year. This partnership combines a united passion for nutrition, good health and empowering kids in leading healthier lives.
School Fun Run continues to inspire our next generation of kids in a fun healthy and inclusive event where children of all abilities and fitness levels can join in on Crazy Colour runs and Splash & Dash amongst other events, boosting each other and our school communities.
School Fun Run, in partnering with Nature’s Way Kids Smart, continues the health trajectory and continues making fundraising fun, healthy and an enjoyable journey whilst promoting the relationship amongst kids, schools and the community.
In 2019, Australian kids ran 18 laps around the world through their participation in School Fun Runs and collectively raised $6million for schools. The funds were used to improve school life by purchasing previously unaffordable equipment, such as new technology and resources, developing community hubs in schools and supporting student wellbeing. Some schools donated money to charities such as Beyond Blue and Cancer Council, making a difference to so many people across Australia.
Since its inception in 1987, School Fun Run has assisted schools from all states and territories to raise tens of millions of dollars for their schools. Here are some notable fundraising achievements over recent years:
New South Wales: St. Patrick’s College, Strathfield, raised over $91,000; Avalon School – over $90,000 raised
Western Australia: Woodthorpe School raised over $72,000
Queensland: Ascot State School raised over $53,000
Victoria: Livingston Primary School raised over $46,000
South Australia: Flagstaff Hill R-7 School raised over $39,000
Nature’s Way Kids Smart motto is ‘Growing healthy kids’ so we are excited about this partnership, which empowers kids, schools and communities to come together for mutual good.
Schools of any size or demographic from Bundaberg to Bondi can host a School Fun Run as all fundraising is done online through a secure platform with funds raised varying from school to school.
