Event Profile

The 7 Rocky River Run on Sunday, 27 May 2018 raises funds to address youth mental health issues and the prevention of youth suicide, which has been a significant issue in Rockhampton for several years. The event has become a great tourist attraction for Rockhampton and is a major contributor to funding local community groups and celebrates its eleventh successful year in 2018. Rockhampton’s favourite charity event once again promises to be a fun day out, all in the name of a good cause!  

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff
