What is the Buddy Run?
One in four children are bullied during their time in school.
The effect can be severe and can impact self-esteem, behaviour and being able to succeed at school. Being bullied over a long time can contribute to serious mental health issues.
Our children should feel safe, respected and included.
Join us this October at the first annual Buddy Run and say no to bullying.
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s Buddy Run, the Anti-bullying Fun Run, a family based event including a 1km fun run for children, will promote inclusion, respect and say no to bullying. The event will raise awareness and much needed funds to help protect our children against bullying and cyber bullying.
Read about how our programs help keep children safe.
You can raise funds as a family by asking friends, family, colleagues and your community to help support the cause leading up to the day.
After the run, visit the “Event Village” where kids will be entertained with loads of fun-filled activities.
