The Hills News Hills M2 Run for the Hills Festival on Saturday, November 23 has something for everyone.

You can kick off your Christmas shopping at The Designer Markets, bop along to live performances by Sam Moran from Nick Jr's "Play Along With Sam" in the Pop-Up Park, or let your kids play in the NAB Kids Zone.

The event supports children's charity Lifestart in Baulkham Hills that provides early intervention services to babies and preschoolers with disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism.

Any gold coin donation goes towards Sing and Grow, Lifestart's eight-week music therapy program for ages up to three and their families.

Partnered by the Hills News and Transurban (Hills M2), and supported by NAB, The Hills Council and Hills Bus, the 8km run starts at 8am from Castle Hill Main Street (Old Northern Road) with the street festival kicking off at 10am.

Designer Markets director Elena Saadie said everyone should check out the 50 stalls featuring talented designers that offer exclusive items that can't be purchased from mainstream shops.

Every donation over $2 is tax deductible and 100 per cent of money donated goes directly to Lifestart.

Early Bird registration is open until Friday, November 14.
