Join us for one of our upcoming events and show your support in person.
We hold a range of events to suit all tastes and budgets, and have a lot of fun in the process!
2020 has unfortunately meant that we have not been able to fundraise the way that we have in past years. We have missed being able to catch up with you at many events throughout the year and fundraise for the Lungitude Foundation together.
The work that the Lungitude Foundation supports remains as important as ever, lung transplants are still happening, and our research team continues the vital work that improves the outcomes for transplant recipients and their families.
What we have learnt this year is that we are able to connect with each other not just by being in the same room, but virtually.
Last year we were able to strap on our runners and walk or run together and raised over $25,000 for the Lungitude Foundation.
This year the Melbourne Marathon is going virtual!!
So how does a virtual marathon work? All you have to do is simply register for the 3km, 5km, 10km, half or full marathon.
When asked if you want to join a team, search for Lungitude Foundation and join our team.
This year the event will be held over a whole week. Within the week of 5th-13th December, on one of those days you must complete your run or walk. Your distance must be completed on the one run/walk and will be tracked via the Melbourne Marathon app.
Head to the Melbourne Marathon website and look through all the FAQ for more details and how to download the app.
We recognise that 2020 has led to much hardship for many people. While this a fundraising event for Lungitude, we do not want to apply pressure on an already financially pressured situation.
We will be registered through the grassrootz.com platform where we can raise funds as a team. If you would like to join us in fundraising you can setup your Grassrootz Fundraising Page here.
Keep an eye out on our social media platforms for more info on this event including our Facebook event group, allowing us to update each other on our progress in training and our results when we choose to run.
Once again, we will have t-shirts and singlets available in limited sizes and each new team member will receive a Lungitude cap.
So, this year you can run or walk your own race, you choose the course and you set and achieve your own goal.
Create your own personal achievement to remember for 2020.
Postponed to 2021
