The Great Ocean Road Running Festival is proud to be supporting the Apollo Bay & District Health Foundation for another year!
Since inception in 1999 the Apollo Bay & District Health Foundation have been distributing grants to the local community and over $273,000 has been distributed from the Great Ocean Road Marathon/Running Festival in the last 8 years.
These generous donations have assisted local community organisations. Apollo Bay P-12 College were able to send students on an international trip, Apollo Bay Sailing Club were able to buy propeller guards for the outboard motors on the rescue boats and the Apollo Bay Community Garden could protect their gardens with netting covers. See the full list of grants here.
The Apollo Bay & District Health Foundation source and organise all of the volunteers from Wye River to Apollo Bay so that your Running Festival experience will be a great one.
If you’ve participated previously you’ll know what a tremendous job the Volunteers do,
- Keeping the route safe by marshalling the roads
- Providing refreshments to competitors
- Ensuring safe and efficient transfer of your bags
- Handing out medals and cheering you on at the Finish Line
