The Cathy Freeman Foundation (CFF) is excited to be one of the official partners of the 2013 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival.
CFF supports the education of over 600 school-aged Indigenous children living on Palm Island – one of the largest remote Indigenous communities in Australia. Unfortunately today there is a significant gap that still exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous education outcomes. Less than 10% of Year 7 students on Palm Island can read and write at a national minimum standard and less than 10% will complete Year 12.
Join us on our journey to help close this gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian children by signing up for our Deadly Runners team here. ‘Deadly’ is an Indigenous slang word for ‘cool’ or ‘awesome’ and we think our team is exactly that! There are exciting prizes to be won for top fundraisers and just for joining our team and making an upfront donation of $25, you’ll receive an exclusive Deadly Runners Running pack including top, hat and water bottle.
Every child deserves their gold medal moment and with you on our team, we know we can make this a reality through education.
