Each year at the Alannah & Madeline Foundation we look forward to Buddy Run, our anti-bullying fundraiser. We love seeing all the smiling faces of our supporters as we run, walk and skip one kilometre together to say no to bullying.
It’s with a heavy heart that we acknowledge that this year, our traditional run is just not possible. Yet, it’s still important for us to connect and have vital conversations about bullying. That’s why we’re organising a remote Buddy Run.
You can host or participate in Buddy Run whenever and wherever you like. All we ask is that you use the time to talk and learn more about bullying, and – hopefully – raise much-needed funds for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
Bullying can have a severe effect on a child and can impact their self-esteem, behaviour and ability to succeed at school.
The effects of bullying can last a lifetime, and we want to make a change and keep fighting against the serious issue that is bullying and cyber-bullying.
Our Buddy Run took inspiration from our International Patron, HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, who holds a very similar event, now in its 13th year, called the ‘Free of Bullying Children’s Relay’.
