Mighty River Run


2016 Mighty River Run 

Novita’s Mighty River Run raises much needed funds for kids living with disability and other needs.

The event, celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2016, takes up to 40 boats and their crews on a five-day trip along the Murray, featuring many spectacular sights of this magnificent river. The idea to take a flotilla of boats along the mighty River Murray was brought to Novita by two of our dedicated Patrons, John Riddell (Channel 7) and Jason ‘Snowy’ Carter.  Each night is at a different location, spending time in towns and homesteads along the way. Days and evenings are filled with activities, entertainment and games that everyone can enjoy.

Over the past nine years, over $2.5M has been raised by the event for Novita.

This year, the Run will be held on 13 - 18 November 2016, travelling from Blanchetown to Chowilla Station, in South Australia. Stops along the way include Waikerie, Loxton, a trip to the border and Renmark.
