Blackmores Sydney Running Festival

Team Bandaged Bear outruns our target #forsickkids

On Sunday 15 September, 310 Team Bandaged Bear supporters participated in the annual Blackmores Sydney Running Festival (BSRF) in support of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead (CHW) and Bear Cottage.

BSRF is made up of four different running/walking events: the Family Fun Run (3.5km), Bridge Run (10km), Half-Marathon (21km), and the Sydney Marathon (42km), and Team Bandaged Bear featured in all of them!

Team Bandaged Bear raised over $56,000, nearly DOUBLE our target. These funds will help us continue to provide much needed care and support for sick kids and their families.

2019 saw the largest BSRF team we’ve had EVER! We also had 20 volunteers on the day, who helped marshal the course and hand out water to all 35,000 participants. Thank you to every single person who gave generously to support sick kids, we couldn’t have hit this milestone amount without you.
