Event Profile

The Chevron City to Surf for Activ turns 44 this year and is WA’s oldest and most loved community fun run. It’s also Activ’s largest annual fundraiser, providing valuable programs and services for thousands of people living with disability. Whether you run, walk or roll through the 4km, 12km, half marathon or marathon, have fun, get fit, set goals and be active for Activ.

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
To make it really easy to ask them to participate, download our email templates.

Setting up a charity team

Setting up a fundraising team is a great way to build a sense of community for all your supporters in the event. Once you’ve created your charity team, make sure you invite anyone supporting you in the event to join.
