Run2Cure and SMH Marathon – A place to raise money
Its undeniable that Sydneysiders enjoy a bit of physical exercise and healthy outdoor living from time-to-time. Over the years, Sydney has accumulated multiple marathons, races and fun runs that weave their way through the city and raise money for a good cause.
Just like the historical ANZAC Buffet, major events supporting important causes have been held in The Domain. Events such as Run2Cure for neuroblastoma, breast cancer research at the Mother’s Day Classic and over 900 charities at the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon.
Committed to supporting registered charities and not-for-profit organisations through our Community Support Charter, events in The Domain have raised nearly a million dollars in the 2017-18 season alone.
In addition, key community events include Step UP! For Down Syndrome, Special Olympics Soar & Roar and stakeholder events such as the Police Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance and the Memorial for Emergency Services Volunteers.
Marathons, concerts and celebrations continue to be supported and held in The Domain, in keeping with the Domain’s rich history of hosting a wide variety of culturally significant events that help bring the people of all ages, interests and backgrounds together.
