How would you like to run a major fundraiser for your school where the kids have so much fun with an explosion of colour, receive meaningful and rewarding incentive prizes for their efforts, is risk free and easy to run as we do all of the hard work for you? Our School Run4Fun Colour Explosion fundraiser is setting a new standard of fun and excitement for students and creating so much more support for your school fun run fundraiser. You’ll be so surprised with the amount of money you will raise and the level of positive feedback from students, parents/carers and teachers.

In 2017 school fundraising was turned on its head with the launch of our School Run4Fun Colour Explosion™, now Australia’s No.1 school colour program. In 2018 it went ballistic: close to nine hundred (900) schools used our school colour event program and we put big smiles on 300,000 students (500,000 students in the first two years). On average schools are increasing the funds they raise with our Colour Explosion™ event program by 40% compared to running a standard fun run.
