After years of lockdowns, City2Surf is finally back in Sydney as one of our most exciting community events!
Last year we saw two of our youngest runners, Emily and Charlie put on their joggers in the name of other children who need support around the world.
12-year-old Emily says, “I chose to support UNICEF because they help girls in Afghanistan to get an education, because they have been stripped of their rights. It is important to support other children who need it, because imagine if you were in their shoes. An education is essential for our minds to flourish, we learn how to grow and how to make a life for ourselves.”
11-year-old Charlie agres, “I loved running the City2Surf, it was a real challenge for me, and I was so happy when I made it to the finish line and that I could support UNICEF, as they do lots of good things for kids all over the world.”
Together Emily and Charlie raised a combined total of $1,739 for vulnerable children around the world – go team!
