How It Works

The Easiest Way to Fundraise

You have all the fun of a Colour Explosion Fun Run, and use your profits to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children across Australia. At no cost to your school or group, you will fundraise for one of Australia’s leading charities helping to protect Australian children from violence and bullying.

60%* of the funds raised will be donated to the Alannah & Madeline Foundation. The remaining 40% covers the costs of your fundraiser.

1. Register Your School or Group

Once you have decided to host an Alannah & Madeline Foundation Colour Explosion Buddy Run at your school, simply jump online and register! Australian Fundraising will send you everything you need upfront, so you can start fundraising right away!

Plus, with most of your fundraising campaign run 100% online, you can organise your fundraiser from anywhere at any time, without the hassle of paperwork!

2. Let the fundraising begin

Use our incredible online platform to start fundraising for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation. Students can choose their prize goal, collect virtual coins, and share their page with family and friends far and wide.

3. Host Your Alannah & Madeline Foundation Colour Explosion Buddy Run!

It’s time to spread colour and kindness, and host your Alannah & Madeline Colour Explosion Buddy Run – it will be the highlight of the school calendar!

Have students run together in pairs, to signify support, unity and partnership within your school. You can pair older students with their younger ‘buddies’ or have classmates run together.

4. Receive Your Prizes

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation

On 28 April 1996, Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, were tragically killed alongside their mother and 32 other people at Port Arthur in Tasmania.

One year later, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation was launched in the girls’ honour by their father, Walter Mikac AM and a small group of volunteers. They were driven by the belief that all children and young people should be able to live a happy and safe life, free from violence and trauma.

Today our mission continues through care, prevention and advocacy – from supporting children experiencing family violence to online bullying and fighting for the rights of young people everywhere. After 25 years, our fight continues. The challenges facing children and young people may have changed, but our mission has not.

We fight for their right to be safe, so their future is strong.


Online Fundraising

Raise 3x more online

Did you know that students who fundraise online have shown to raise 3x more funds than those who do not? Supersize your donation to the Alannah & Madeline Foundation by fundraising with our awesome online fundraising profile!

We have made our cyber-safe platform as robust as possible, to help ease the load on your volunteers and encourage BIG donations from your school community.

You will benefit from huge advancements to our online fundraising platform, now with gamification elements to encourage engagement and $200,000 in free sponsorship credits. You can elevate your fundraising achievements beyond what would be otherwise possible.

Stay safe online!

It is of critical importance that we ensure the safety of children who use our online fundraising platforms. We were the first school fun run company to ensure photos of children do not appear online with reference to their name and organisation. Children can now create their own avatar. With this in mind, we’ve implemented the best practice solution to benefit from online fundraising whilst keeping children safe online.


The Hottest Toys in Fundraising

Add excitement and boost participation with our bumper selection of incentive prizes! Offering more prizes across dozens of fundraising milestones, students only need to raise $10 to be eligible for an awesome fundraising prize. From squish balls to electronics, every family is sure to find a prize to aim towards!
