Run for PCYC
Here at PCYC Queensland, we believe in using sport for positive choice. This means that the next time you are out getting active, you are able to raise vital funds for young Queenslanders. You could choose to participate in a fun-run, marathon, long walk or anything in between!
Whether you want to take on an event as an individual or as part of a team, it’s as simple as registering for the event through the event website, selecting PCYC Queensland when prompted to create your fundraising page and then asking your friends and family to sponsor you.
Not sure what event to take on? Check out some events below! This is not an exhaustive list – there are hundreds of events you can participate in as a fundraiser for PCYC Queensland!
Celebrate with PCYC
Donations in lieu of a gift can be applied to almost any event or celebration – birthdays, christenings, graduations, anniversaries, weddings – and is simple to arrange. No matter the occasion, your fundraising will make a real difference to young people in Queensland by providing them with access to life-changing opportunities.
