Charity Partners

The UQ Twilight Run partners with charities to raise funds to help worthy causes. So far, more than $350,000 has been raised for various research and fundraising initiatives across Australia.

The event charity partner plays an important role in ensuring the event runs smoothly through volunteer provisions in areas such as race pack collation and collection, assisting at aid stations and recovery areas, marshalling, baggage, as well as further event exposure through corporate supporters.

For the Twilight Bay Run (UQ Twilight Run’s sister run) in September 2018, we partnered with Mangrove Housing, a charity dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness among vulnerable women over 55 by helping this growing demographic access affordable housing in southeast Queensland.
