Run For The Kids 2019

On Sunday 7 April 2019, the Aintree Group team will be getting up bright and early, putting on their running gear and participating in Run For The Kids in support of the Royal Children's Hospital's Chronic Illness Peer Support Program (ChIPS). 

This year, some brave (and more experienced) members of the team will be tackling the 12.8km Long Course. Others will be showing their support on the 5.2km Woodlea Short Course. 


We would greatly appreciate any and all support from clients, friends and family. 

All donations made to our fundraising page will be put towards the Chronic Illness Peer Support program (ChIPS), and will go a long way to help young people in Victoria who are struggling with illness.


If you would like to go one step further and become a corporate sponsor, and have your logo featured on all our Run For The Kids digital marketing, please contact us before Friday 15 March 2019.

ChIPs is a peer support program for young people living with a chronic medical illness.

ChIPS works to engage young people from metropolitan and rural Victoria through Eight Week Groups and Intensives, camps, socials and leadership training.

The program is currently 100% philanthropically funded via The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, and is where all our fundraising will be directed. 


The Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids is a community event, and its primary aim is to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

To date the event has raised over $17.1 million dollars.

The Royal Children’s Hospital improves the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents through leadership in healthcare, research and education. Nearly all families come into direct contact with the work of the hospital at some stage, either through the care of their own children or through friends or family. 

If you have any questions about the event, or Aintree Group's participation, please get in touch
