The 2017 Mighty River Run is a fundraising event, raising money for Novita. There is a minimum fundraising amount of $6,000 per crew and all funds raised for Novita must be forwarded to the organisation, due prior to the commencement of the event. This is the minimum fundraising amount and crews are encouraged to raise additional funds. All funds raised and donated are non-refundable.
Money can be donated directly by the crew, or funds can be raised through various events, raffles, and other fundraising activities. Novita will be with you every step of the way to support your fundraising including the provision of equipment (banners, marquees etc.), printed collateral (flyers, tickets etc.), and other fundraising tools (donation tins, raffle books etc.). Additionally, Novita will provide you with on-going communications with lots of tips and tools to help you reach your fundraising goal.
The highest fundraising crew for the 2018 event will be acknowledged during the opening dinner on Sunday 11 November, 2018.

We can meet to discuss your fundraising plans anytime in the months leading up to the event and we will be sending you emails with lots of tips and ideas to help your crew reach its fundraising goal.
Registrations close at the end of September so everyone has time to fundraise the full amount. We will help you every step of the way with your fundraising with tips and tools. We can also provide you with collateral like posters, donation boxes, banners etc. Of course we do understand that sometimes things happen out of our control that may prevent someone from raising the full amount prior to the event. Don’t worry, we will help you work out a plan to reach your goal and in special circumstances, fundraising can continue after the event. Fundraising officially closes one month after the event.
A registration pack will be provided to you when you register for the Mighty River Run which includes all necessary documentation.
