How it works

Joining Team Wish

Head to the official City2Surf website to sign up for your place in the event. During registration, you'll be asked to nominate a cause you care about - be sure to add Make-A-Wish!

Personalise your fundraising page with your story of why you're taking on the challenge. Then share it with friends and family, collect donations and help make wishes come true. Every dollar counts!

Make your way from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach for the big event on Sunday, August 14th, 2023. Give it your best and know that wherever you place, you're part of the team making wishes come true for sick kids across the country.

I don’t think people realise how important wishes are for kids. They are going through hell and it gives them a distraction and something to look forward to.
