DO Details

Can you fly faster than a Rainbow Lorikeet?

Run like a Emu?

Out-waddle a Wombat?

Here’s your opportunity! Introducing our first ZOO RUN for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Yes, that’s right, a ZOO RUN is a fun run where you’ll run through Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

If you are a serious athlete – take on the 5 kilometre challenge!  This course is NOT for the faint hearted or unfit!  We have some very Steep Hills, narrow windy bush track with awesome obstacles and challenges for the single runner.

Not so serious? No worries, how about a 2 kilometre family fun run / walk. You can even dress-up if you are that way inclined! We’ll even have a prize for best-dressed entrant / team!

This unique event will take place on Sunday 23rd November 2014, starting at 6:30am and finishing by 8:00am. Yes – you’ll be in there before the crowds, so the zoo will be nice and quiet (just you and a couple of hundred other competitors!!!)

Of course, the ZOO RUN will be a fundraiser for the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital so you will be getting sweaty for a good cause!

We’ll need sponsors and supporters to get this organised, so please give us a call if you want to help this awesome event. We’ll also need some volunteers!

You will need to go on line and register for the ZOO RUN -  we will use Register Now so please see the link below

Prices are  only  $50 per participant for the 5 km run, or $40 per participant for the 2 km family fun run / walk.

Riding in a pram or stroller is not permitted on the 5km bush track.  If you are taking bub out to enjoy the beauty of Currumbin please join in on the 2km paved path way.  There might still be a few bumps and hills along the way, so be ready for it!  Children aged 3 and under are also FREE!!!

ZOO RUN is a concept by our 14 year old Daughter Tegan. Tegan loves wildlife and to date has raised over $78500.00 for conservation. On the Sunshine Coast she has raised close to $70,000.00 for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital and $8,500,00 for other charities such as Qld Koala Crusaders and Twinnies Pelican and Seabird rescue. To date Tegan has won Qld Junior Philanthropist award for 2013 and Young Citizen of the Year for Moreton Bay Region 2014. She is very proud to be recognised but is still working hard to reach her personal goal of $100,000.00 for wildlife before she leaves high school. Wildlife Emergency is a Not For Profit that has been created to help Tegan put on her events such as the ZOO RUN as well as her beach clean up, land care and other community events.
If you would like to be involved and help us in any way, volunteering, sponsorship or donation of prizes for any of Tegan's events please email us at or go to the web page.
