Run Ballarat

October 16, 2016

We are encouraging all members of the St Patrick’s College community, including our Old Collegians, to participate in this year’s Run Ballarat and, in the process help raise money for the Children’s Ward at the Ballarat Base Hospital and potentially also generate some much needed vouchers for the College.

What: Run Ballarat

Where: North Gardens, Lake Wendouree

When: Sunday October 23

Why: 100% of every registration fee goes to the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward at the Ballarat Base Hospital. Since 2012 the Ballarat community has raised $752,000 towards the redevelopment.

Events: 12km run, 6km run, 6km family walk, 1km KIDS run

The first 25 to register get a pedometer.

There is also the potential for the College to receive a $1000 voucher for sporting equipment – all we need is 200 registrations. Most years, 200+ students of St Patrick’s do actually participate in the day but don’t register under the College’s name. Here is what you now need to do.
