Fundraising

The Gunn Runners have been involved with raising money for various charities since 2003.  We are a not for profit organisation with all funds above operating expenses donated to charity each year.

Over the years we have raised several thousands of dollars for the Cancer Council through supporting Relay for Cancer CouncilLife and other fundraiser events organised by Gunnie members.  Check out this Cancer Council Letter.

We also regularly raise funds for a local charity, the Sacred Heart Mission in St Kilda who provide over 400 meals every day to those in our community less fortunate than ourselves.

We’ve raised money for the Alfred Hospital for their rehabilitation unit.  For more on this check the letter out Alfred_Foundation_Thank_you.  In Oct 2009 we raised enough for a Upright Bike in Alfred Burns Unit.

In 2013 we made a $1000 donation to the Loc Tho Pagoda, Orphanage & School in Nha Trang, Vietnam – our donation purchased new sandals for 140 children

In 2016 we supported the following organisations:

$400 donation to Beyond Blue
$400 donation to the Sacred Heart Mission
$400 donation to Huntington’s Victoria.

The Gunn Runners are proud to be associated with these charities and that we’ve raised well over $20,000 over the years.  Our spirit continues with our special events that pop up, keep an eye on the calendar for future events.
