Run, Walk, or Move 50K this April

This April, we’re challenging you to walk, run or move 50km in support of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH).

Whether you complete your challenge in a day, a weekend, or across the whole month, the choice is entirely up to you!

By taking part, you will be helping to raise crucial funds to support the RBWH, a hospital that has touched and changed the lives of millions of Queenslanders. Money raised throughout The Royal 50K will be helping to fund advancements in patient care and research, helping to save lives now and into the future.

When is the challenge?
