Students from Tallowood School will be running in the adidas School Fun-Run to raise extra funds for their school.
Students have already started seeking support from the community for running in the event on August 25, and will continue to do so as sponsorship is vital to make their fund-raiser a success.
Linda Sheridan from Tallowood School said this was a platform to excite kids about physical activity.
"Tallowood School is setting the standard for other schools to follow by choosing a way to raise money, that delivers positive messages about the importance of physical activity to children's health, growth and development," she said.
All schools are invited to participate in the adidas School Fun-Run by visiting http://schoolfunrun.com.au.
