Ab-so-lutely! As well as the run itself there will be plenty of other entertainment for the whole family to

sun sets in beautiful Centennial Park keeping an eye on the kids as they enjoy the entertainment.
Do I have to fundraise?
We do not set any minimum fundraising targets but we'd love you to fundraise. Your registration fee helps
to pay the cost of holding the event, so by fundraising on top you will help Starlight Children’s Foundation

All of the money raised from this year’s RBC Race for the Kids will go towards helping Starlight make a
difference in the lives of seriously ill children and their families through the Starlight Express Rooms and
Captain Starlight Programs at Sydney’s two major pediatric hospitals. For more information on Starlight’s
