Santa Fun Runners unite!

Sign up to be a santa and spread the spirit of Christmas to kids in need!

The Variety Santa Fun Run is the jolliest fun run of the year and your chance to join thousands of other Santas to spread the spirit of Christmas to Aussie kids in need.

You can run, walk, roll or skip it, dance to entertainment along the way, make a splash on social media, and post a Santa selfie #squad!

We're aiming to raise $250,000 to support kids who are sick, disadvantaged, or have special needs, so round up your colleagues and create a team challenge, or get involved with your family and friends and help Aussie kids be kids this Christmas.

Your support is vital

Each month, Variety – the Children's Charity provides over $1 million in support to children and families across the country, and we can't do it without your help.

Your entry fee covers the cost of staging the Santa Fun Run, but we also need your help to fundraise.

Variety helps children and families by providing support for things, such as equipment, therapy, and medical supplies, which they can't afford, or government doesn't provide. We are often their last resort and we aim to 'fill the gaps' left by governments and organisations.

That's why we're asking you to fundraise online in the lead up to the event. Set up a personal profile page on Everyday Hero and share it with your friends, families and colleagues. Just $20 from five of your mates is $100 – and that can have a huge impact on a child's life!

If you raise $100 or more, you will go in the draw to win an iPad.
