Support our fun run teams

Help support The Big Issue in your state by getting behind our fun run teams!

Teams of vendors and supporters are gearing up to enter fun runs in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne to raise funds for The Big Issue’s work in each state.

For the past 20 years, The Big Issue has provided opportunities for homeless and disadvantaged men and women. In that time, 6500 vendors have hit the streets - rain, hail or shine - to sell The Big Issue magazine. With support from the community, we can make this year our biggest yet.
