Volunteering At RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run 2019

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” “Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.”


For 28 years, the International Women’s Day Fun Run has been held in Brisbane to bring the community together in support of women affected by breast cancer. The event unites the Queensland community and RACQ has supported International Women’s Day Fun Run for the last 10 years, working together with Mater to make a lasting difference in the lives of Queenslanders.

 “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.”



 “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”



“Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.”

On Sunday the 3rd of March 2019, a sea of pink surged through South Bank and the Brisbane CBD. Runners and walkers enjoyed a picturesque 5km or 10km course whilst raising much needed funds for the Mater.

 “Whatever community organization, whether it’s a women’s organization, or fighting for racial justice … you will get satisfaction out of doing something to give back to the community that you never get in any other way.”



 “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”





Last year, RACQ members who participated in the fun run raised over $400,660. Kim enjoyed helping at the Rebel Pit Stop at Kangaroo Cliffs.


This year Kim helped at the finish Line cheering loudly everyone finishing. Kim was easy to spot because of her loud cow bell that rang loudly as competitors finished. The Pink Cheer Squad was an integral to the success of the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run. Kim was located on course and had the opportunity to see and cheer on all of our wonderful participants. This role involved directing and encouraging participants, monitoring the course for accidents and assisting spectators to cross the course safely in appropriate locations. Volunteers play an important part in the success of RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run, without volunteers an event like this would not be possible. Event organizers and competitors are so grateful for all volunteers who offer their time and efforts for an event that supports such a great cause.
