Donations & Charity Fundraising Events

2018 is set to be our biggest year yet! We’ve lined up a number of fantastic fundraising events that you can attend for a good cause. Dress to the nines for our annual Charity Ball or put your trainers on and take part in our Fun Run. Purchase a ticket to our Race Day event for an afternoon of JRF Fashions in the Field, with raffles and meat trays to be won. We’re also always on the lookout for volunteers to help out on event day.

Check this page regularly to learn about our upcoming events. If you want to pitch in behind the scenes, contact our JRF committee and find out how you can take part in our next fundraiser.

2018 Fundraising events

2018 started off to be a great year for us. Our inaugural tent at Yeppoon Turf race day was a fun day on 21st April. The spirit of the day was reflected in the action of the winner of the $500 money board. They donated their prize back to JRF. Thanks Jennita and Trevor Plahn. Check out our gallery for lots of photos of us dressed in our best.

We officially launched our ‘Become a Friend of JRF’ campaign where we encourage people to become more than just Facebook friends who like our posts, but continue to or start fundraising for our charity in whatever way works best for you!

JRF Fun Run

Our fun run was held on 29 April at Yeppoon’s Main Beach. Lots of people came suitably dressed in the theme of the day—Traffic Lights. There were lots of prizes for best dressed, generously donated by Rossco’s Pizza, all the fish and chips shops on the coast and Yeppoon Day and Night Pharmacy. Once again, the JRF boats were in best racing form and fun was had by all!

Annual Charity Ball

Our annual charity ball was held once again in Yeppoon’s Town Hall on Saturday the 28th of July.
