As a for-profit event management company, we love the opportunity we have to partner with charities to help shine a light on their amazing work within society and highlight the causes they stand for. We have raised donations for more than 80 local and national charities since 2012. To date, The Color Run has donated more than $5 million to charity.

Help bring a splash of colour to sick kids in hospital!


Just because you’re sick doesn’t mean you stop being a kid. And it shouldn’t mean missing out on all the fun of childhood. So Starlight Children’s Foundation helps sick kids simply be kids. We replace pain, fear and stress with fun, joy and laughter.

We know there’s more to treating an illness than just medicine, that’s why we work hand in hand with health professionals. Play, art, games and creativity are all important to a child’s wellbeing and that helps overall health too. Fun, happy experiences are good for the mind and good for the body. (And fun is what we do best!)





When you fundraise for Starlight, every dollar counts. Your support helps to create colourful memories for sick kids like George.


Cheeky little George doesn’t let cancer get in the way of having fun. In between medical treatments, George puts the pain aside to have fun doing regular kid stuff at Starlight Express Rooms with his big sister Arabella. Just ask George’s Mum: “Starlight has supported us every day. The crafts, the dancing and game playing all create so many happy and positive memories for us.


We’d love to see you creating your own colourful memories at Color Run while you fundraise for sick kids.

If you can’t make it you can still donate and help bring a splash of colour to sick kids lives:





Starlight is home-grown and the broadest reaching children’s charity in Australia. Last year we created over 522,208 Starlight experiences for sick kids and their families. We support kids of all ages, regardless of their illness or injury. From Captain Starlight and the Starlight Express Rooms to Livewire and our Healthier Futures Initiative, Starlight helps brighten the lives of sick kids everywhere across Australia.

At Starlight Children’s Foundation, we believe FUN fights fear and wins every time.
