Run Melbourne

Sunday 28 July 2019

Join Team Berry Street and help raise funds to support Victorian children recovering from abuse, trauma, violence and neglect.

This year, we’re aiming to raise $50,000 for the special resources needed to give students at the Berry Street School the future they deserve.

These students have experienced things no child ever should, and with your help teachers and staff can continue to help these children in ways no other school could.

James – Berry Street champion, 2017 & 2018

“Pouring resources into the well-being of our society’s children seems common sense to me. Having grown up in an environment where verbal abuse was common place, I am committed to breaking the cycle and have been proud to support Berry Street and their amazing work for the past two years as a champion runner.”
