The 2020 Beyond Virtual Run raised over $17,000 which will allow us to implement Run Beyond in a number of new schools, empowering students with a diverse range of needs.

On Saturday, September 8, five students from Nambucca Heads High School lined up at the start line of the 10km Fun Run at the Coffs Harbour Running Festival after months of training in preparation with their teacher and coach Michelle Versluys. Nervous but full of...
