 Run to Better Days

Xavier are proud to be associated with the ‘Run to Better Days’ charity, founded by Daniel Charles, past student.  Each year since 2012, the Run to Better Days team undergoes a fundraising run of around 1000km, stopping in at schools, community organisations and universities to give presentations about extreme poverty and what we, both as individuals and as a nation, can realistically do about it. They’ve raised over $60 000 for international aid and development charities, have had the privilege of giving presentations to roughly 25 000 people, and have run 3000km between them.  This week we were privileged to have the team present to our Year 10-12 students.  They camped over in our Hall overnight and we cooked up a hearty breakfast for them before they headed off on the road. The crew presented the school with a framed picture as a thank you.  We look forward to hosting them again next year.To donate to this wonderful cause, go to:
