THERE is still time to register for the Hills News M2 Run for the Hills.
And if running is not your thing you can help by sponsoring our event ambassadors: Channel 10 journalist Magdalena Roze and Youth Olympic hurdler Michelle Jenneke.
Run for the Hills is an 8-kilometre fun run on Sunday, October 20 that raises money for Lifestart, an organisation that provides early childhood intervention for children with a disability or delay.
Former James Ruse Agricultural High School student Ms Roze encourages everyone to take part, donate or "come down and support the runners and the kids".
"The sooner we can provide essential services to these children the better," she said.
Dural resident Miss Jenneke said she was proud to be an ambassador for such a "great cause".
"These young children really need all the support we can give them," she said.
Run for the Hills will be followed by a free family festival on Main Street, Castle Hill from 10am to 4pm.
The festival includes The Designer Market, free kids' zoo and pony rides, free carnival rides, a pop-up park, a free outdoor movie screening at 3pm and live entertainment including Australian boy band What About Tonight at 12.30pm.
The first 500 entrants will receive a gift bag with goodies, a medal, an event wristband and breakfast courtesy of Sanitarium or fresh fruit courtesy of Virgin Active Norwest. And all entrants go into a draw for a Lorna Jane wardrobe worth $500.
