Fundraising has been an optional part of the Point to Pinnacle since 2012. We encourage you to consider fundraising as part of your Point to Pinnacle OR Point to Pub experience this year. Fundraising is a great way to help someone else overcome their personal mountains while you train and take on yours

This is the 6th year P2P has worked with the Everyday Hero (EDH) web platform and event charity partner Movember to open up fundraising opportunities to all entrants.

Funds raised over the last 5 years through EDH for a variety of charities has now totalled $305,058 and through Movember (raising funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental Health) have also raised $420,713.  The Mobart Mobros group have been a major driving force behind this outstanding total and we would like to thank and encourage them to continue their amazing work for this great cause.

It is easy to see what an amazing and positive difference we can all make to others if we help raise some much needed funds for a cause close to our hearts.

We are extremely proud of the P2P fundraising tally since we moved in this direction 5 years ago and in this short time have managed to raise a collective $725,771 for a wide range of charities and organisations.

We encourage you to raise as much as you possibly can, encourage others to get involved in raising funds and hope to collectively raise over $200,000 again in 2017.

Please set up your Everyday Hero Fundraising Page as a part of your registration process and then the links provided in your confirmation of registration email.

Check out the Event Booklet for further information on fundraising and fundraising tips and ideas.

A running team consists of four people. A walking team consists of two or more
people. There is no limit on corporate or recreational team sizes.

Note: Teams of four will only be eligible for team awards – there will be random spot prizes for walking teams and also a corporate trophy for the fastest corporateteam (top 4 finish times combined regardless of team size).

Four Person Teams (male, female or mixed)
These have been the traditional Point To Pinnacle team categories and continue to provide teams a chance to compete for prestige and prizes. (Note: You must have 4
people to complete a team entry in the above categories).

Corporate and Recreational Teams
These categories have been created to cater for large groups (more than 4 people) wanting to compete in a range of ways, including: businesses / corporate groups, office work mates, groups running for a cause to fund-raise money for charity, training groups or for teams who just want to train together and be part of a large team on event day.
