Get Your Joggers On: The Little Black Dress Run for Twenty10
It’s become a must-do event of the Mardi Gras season, it’s a whole bunch of silly fun, and it raises money for a very good cause. Back again for its 16th year, The Sydney Frontrunners Little Black Dress Run sees Darling Harbour awash with the ultimate wardrobe essential (just ask Posh Spice), as runners dress up to fundraise for a fantastic and deeply important service.
The Twenty10 Association provides crucial child, youth and family counselling services. It is a community-based, non-profit, state-wide organisation, working with and supporting people of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities, their families and communities. Its aim is to be a beacon of strength and acceptance by supporting individuals dealing with issues like homophobia, transphobia, and family and peer rejection to build resilience and achieve their potential.
Participants in The Little Black Dress Run pay a $25 entry fee (see registration details below), and are encouraged to seek donations from family and friends, with all proceeds going to Twenty10. Dressed in their Sunday best, they’ll run (or walk – The Little Black Dress Run welcomes all fitness levels!) from the Village Green at Darling Quarter, past Harbourside Shopping Centre, to the Australian National Maritime Museum, over the Pyrmont Bridge, through Cockle Bay Wharf, and back to Darling Quarter for drinks, nibblies, and awards! (Will you win best dressed?)
Plenty of stops are made on the way, and the focus is on fun, so don’t worry if you’re not quite Cathy Freeman. It’s about being there, giving it a go, and making a difference – in a little black dress.
