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. 

You don't have complete the run yourself - we're doing that part for you (although you're welcome to join our Aintree Group team if you wish). Donations to support the young patients at the Royal Children's Hospital and members of the ChIPS program will go a long way, and it's what the whole day is all about.

If you would to go one step further and become a sponsor, and have your logo featured on all our Run For The Kids digital marketing, please contact us before Friday 22 February 2019. 


It would be wonderful to have clients, family and friends running (or walking) alongside us on the day. You will need to let us know before Friday 8 March 2019 if you would like to join the Aintree Group team.
