Team Bandaged Bear at Bondi

Let’s make 2017’s City2Surf the biggest ever!

Bandaged Bear is again asking supporters to dust off their running shoes on Sunday 13 August for this year’s City2Surf.

Gather your friends, family and colleagues for 14kms of fun to support two very special places of care—The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Bear Cottage.


Join Team Bandaged Bear

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Bear Cottage make it their mission to care for sick children from all around NSW, Australia and the Pacific Rim. Team Bandaged Bear needs your help to raise much-needed funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Bear Cottage. In 2017, our goal is to raise $600,000.

To join Team Bandaged Bear, follow these steps:

  1. Create a fundraising page
  2. Get your entry into City2Surf (registrations are now open)
  3. Raise a minimum of $250 to receive a Team Bandaged Bear singlet and entry into our after-party on Bondi Beach. We provide free food, drinks, entry into prize draws, regular updates and a certificate of thanks.

Be part of the team that has already raised over $2.5 million to provide care and support for seriously ill children in their time of greatest need. Money you raise can go to a specific department upon request.


Run for a Reason

When Halor was born with a serious heart condition, his parents never imagined he would one day be able to run the City2Surf. But this year, Halor is doing exactly that, running as part of Team Bandaged Bear to raise money not only for the doctors and nurses who helped him but also to support other patients like him. Read his story here.
