BayRun is excited to be once again partnering with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Make your event count by supporting remote Indigenous communities when you take part in the BayRun by raising funds while you race. Set up an Everyday Hero fundraising page and ask your friends, colleagues and family to support your efforts.
And don't forget to make a donation to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation when you register for your chosen BayRun event – we'll prompt you to dig deep for this worthy cause when you do!
A word from our charity partner...
Our vision is equity of opportunity. Being able to read opens so many doors. But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia.
Our mission is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language - but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.
