$21,785 raised for Femili PNG in the Canberra Marathon


Thank you everyone who contributed to our Femili PNG Canberra Running Festival fundraising campaign in April 2017. Our fundraising target was $20,000, and we made it – raising $21,785. This is triple the amount we raised in 2015 and almost double the amount we raised in 2016.

Thank you to the team of 18 people who ran or walked in the events – we had four runners complete the half-marathon, nine the 10k, and five the 5k.

Check out some of the photos below and read the Canberra Times article here.
