how to smash your fundraising goal!

The Cathy Freeman Foundation is proud to have achieved such amazing results in our partner communities over the past 11 years and we are extremely excited about the possibilities that lay ahead over the next decade and beyond. But put simply, we cannot continue to positively influence the lives of thousands of Indigenous students without support from people like you!

We know that fundraising can be really difficult so to those of you have already raised funds in the lead up to this weekend's City2Surf, we want to say a HUGE thank you!

If you're still yet to kickstart your fundraising, it certainly isn't too late! There are two extremely simple ways to get started and show your support...

  1. Email your family, closest friends and colleagues: Send an email to the closest people in your life telling them about the great thing that you are doing by running in support of Indigenous education on Sunday. Simply include the link to your Everyday Hero page so that they can donate directly to your personal page. (Yet to setup a Everyday Hero page? Click here)

  2. Post on your social media channels: Tell everybody that you're passionate about running for a great cause by posting your Everyday Hero page URL on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. Your fundraising page will still be active after the event so remember to include your fundraising page URL on any photos that you post after you've crossed the finish line!

race bib collection

All City2Surf participants that haven't received their race bib in the post will need to collect their bib from the City2Surf Expo at the Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour. Simply show the confirmation email that you received when registering for the event to the event staff.

post-city2surf celebration at bondi icebergs club

All Team Freeman fundraisers are invited to our exclusive post-City2Surf celebration on the pool deck of Bondi Icebergs Club. This is our little way of saying thank you for your fundraising efforts and for supporting Indigenous education. 


Join the Cathy Freeman Foundation team for a relaxed afternoon on the pool deck of Bondi Icebergs Club. You'll have access to change rooms, swimming pool and delicious food and drinks. You'll receive a complementary drink and food ticket when entering the Club. You can purchase more food and drink for $5 each thereafter.Due to event costs and limited capacity, only Team Freeman fundraisers are able to gain access to the pool deck.


From the finish line, walk to the south end of Bondi Beach to Notts Avenue. Walk down the hill towards Bondi Icebergs Club, take the ramp on the left and you'll see the POOL ENTRANCE. You'll see Cathy Freeman Foundation volunteers at the bottom of the ramp wearing red t-shirts and big smiles! 

road closures

All major roads along the 14km course will be closed during the event, with earliest roads closures starting from 3:30am near Hyde Park.
