The Virtual Melbourne Marathon

Virtual Melbourne Marathon – December 5 – 13th, 2020

We are thrilled that the Cerebral Palsy Education Centre (CPEC) will once again be the official charity for the 2020 Virtual Melbourne Marathon Festival! The Melbourne Marathon is an iconic event that hosts over 37,000 participants across the 5 distances. CPEC has been part of the Melbourne Marathon for 13 years now, providing the majority of the volunteers that help runners in and around the MCG.

We love being part of this iconic event as it not only helps raise much needed funds for our centre through fundraising, but also gives our children and families a great sense of community and achievement by being involved. Given the many challenges our children face, being able to participate in a physical challenge like the Melbourne Marathon is truly inspirational!

The event is our major fundraiser for the year and during the event we need FUNDRAISERS. Whilst we are the official charity, we receive no part of any runner or walkers registration fee, which is why the fundraising efforts count for us.

If you would like to help make a difference to the children and families at CPEC by participating in the Marathon and raising money, simply:

  1. Register online for the marathon here. Remember to select “CPEC” as your fundraising charity
  2. MOST IMPORTANTLY…Set up your fundraising page via Grassrootz here
