AMRRIC has partnered with Everyday Hero to offer our supporters the simplest way to community fundraise.

Natalie is not an everyday hero - she is an extraordinary hero. Thank you Natalie for being an awesome AMRRIC supporter! Natalie's challenge was to run 50km a day every day for the last 5 days of 2014. Yes, you read correctly - 50km x 5 days. Not only did Natalie complete this incredible running challenge she also smashed her $555 target and raised over $1300 for AMRRIC.
Natalie used Everyday Hero to set up a supporter page and then she emailed her friends and family to ask for support. She also did a great job of blogging about her challenge and she documented each run with images and the time it took to run each section. What an amazing effort! Natalie’s fundraising success helps AMRRIC to continue our One Health programs on remote Indigenous communities.
