Ways you can help

The Bravehearts 777

It’s the ultimate fundraising adventure for everyday people who want to achieve extraordinary feats.

Individuals and teams are encouraged to join the mighty 2017 Bravehearts 777 and take on the challenge of a lifetime to raise money to protect Aussie kids against child sexual assault by participating in a marathon in their state – with seven to choose from Australia-wide.

To be held Mid 2017, seven 42-kilometre marathons across seven consecutive days will be staged across seven states – Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, Kingscliff and culminating in Australia’s largest marathon on the beautiful Gold Coast alongside more than 25,000 competitors.

Fundraising goals for individual and team participants in state legs are $250 per person per race.

Funds raised go towards Bravehearts personal safety education program ‘Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure’ and the delivery of specialist support services to children and families affected by child sexual assault.

Race Inclusions

There are three choices for the level of commitment to the Bravehearts 777: Become a 777 runner and run all 7 marathons in 7 states in 7 days; Protect Aussie kids and run just 1 marathon in your home state/preferred state; or become a relay runner and pick a team to run just one marathon in your home state/preferred state.

National participants taking part in the Bravehearts 777 aim to raise a minimum of $10,000 to help protect Australian children against sexual assault.

Research shows that one in five Australian children will be sexually assaulted in some way before their 18th birthday – that’s 59, 000 children each year or more than 1,000 a week!  With your contribution (and your legs), you can help Bravehearts to halve these statistics.

How $10,000 helps Aussie kids

Participants get together with local community members, businesses, friends and family to host a range of fundraising activities, such as BBQ’s, morning teas, movie nights or even garage sales.

The Bravehearts team will provide you with ideas throughout the 777 to help you fundraise amongst your community. Spreading the word about the 777 challenge is as simple as engaging your network on social media channels, through local sports clubs, businesses and friends and family.
