We invite YOU to join Communities@Work’s Team Yellow Van and run or walk at the City2Surf on Sunday 11 August 2013.

The City2Surf is an iconic day on Australia’s calendar and is a lot of fun.It is a 14km run (or walk) starting in Sydney’s CBD and finishing at Bondi Beach. It is a carnival-style community event, with thousands of people joining in, as well as lots of quirky and fun things to see along the way. There are always people in odd costumes, silly hats or witty T-shirts.

This is your chance to help make a difference by raising essential funds for Communities@Work’s Yellow Van. The Yellow Van is Canberra’s only local food rescue service and we assist over 80 agencies; including domestic violence refuges; disability support services; homeless shelters; youth drop-in centres; mental health support groups; people with drug, alcohol or gambling problems; school breakfast programs; and other programs who assist those in financial difficulties.

Communities@Work Yellow Van does not receive any government funding to deliver this valuable service.

With your support, we are aiming to raise at least $20,000 at this year’s race and this will be of tremendous help to The Yellow Van. Together we can make a difference and change the lives of people experiencing hardship in our community.

We encourage serious runners, power walkers and leisurely strollers alike as you can compete at your own pace!
