If you would like advice about fundraising please contact our Fundraising Manager Mary Paton. Here are some fun ideas to get you started:

  • Get your running shoes on and enter the City to Surf or the Melbourne Age Marathon, or any running event that challenges you.
  • Host a high tea and ask your friends and family to each contribute their favourite cake for a morning of delicious sweets and great company. Everyone can pay an entrance fee to your supporter page to take part.
  • Hold a car wash in your street on Saturday morning and in return the happy clean car owners give to your supporter page.
  • Do you know a lot of busy people who are always complaining about never having time to get things done? Offer to run their errands for a small fee!
  • Hold a garage sale to get rid of all those unwanted items and raise money for your favourite cause

Meet our Everyday Hero Natalie

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.

Every day hero Natalie
