About this opportunity

Event Volunteer  - 2024 HeraldSun / Transurban Run for the Kids

The HeraldSun / Transurban Run for the Kids (R4K) will be held on Sunday, 17 March 2024. This wonderful event could not be staged without the dedication and hard work of our team of volunteers. Behind the scenes the event relies on more than 800 volunteers to assist with drink stations, constructing our unique courses, getting runners underway from the start, cheering them on their way and greeting them at the finish line.

Volunteering is a terrific way to get involved, be part of the team and make your contribution, helping to raise vital funds for the 2024 Good Friday Appeal.
