The University of Sydney Schools Community Challenge is an initiative that looks to foster positive health, wellbeing and physical activity within primary, secondary and specialist schools throughout NSW.
The initiative’s focal point is the NAB RunWest event, whereby schools are encouraged to enter as many students, teachers and parents as possible, and get rewarded financially for their participation.
A core component of the University of Sydney Schools Community Challenge is getting the school community physically active and moving before, during and after RunWest.
All participating schools are eligible to register for a free six-week Run Fit Program leading into the event, with the option of it being delivered by Athletics Australia Accredited Coaches at your school.
The University of Sydney Schools Community Fundraiser also includes a WESTERN SYDNEY BONUS CHALLENGE for schools located within Western Sydney.
Fundraising: 30% of all entry fees under the School’s Fundraiser will go back to the school as a kickback donation.
Student Program: Six week Run Fit Programme for school kids, delivered by either Athletics Australia Accredited Coaches or the school’s teachers.
Exclusive Invites: School students to attend an exclusive day at Sydney Zoo pre-event.
Anyone can register under the Challenge; kids, parents, teachers, supporters and businesses associated with the school.
* Determined on a pro-rata participation rate of number of registered participants per number of students in the school. To be eligible for the cash prizes schools must be located within the greater Western Sydney region.
