Events

Every year Centennial Parklands is privileged to support some of the best and most enjoyable community and charity events on the calendar. And the best part? Not only are they great fun, but over $430,000 in direct donations was directly raised for a range of great causes in the last year alone.

Over the last fortnight we have held two great events of a charitable or community focus, and this coming weekend you are invited to join another…

Event #1: Miracle Babies Foundation Picnic – an annual event to celebrate miracle babies and the families of premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them.

The Miracle Babies event was enjoyed by all, including their newest Ambassador and miracle dad Sam Perrett from the Canterbury Bulldog

The Boarder X Series drew competitors from across the world to the first national championships

And coming up this weekend…

Join us for Walk4Life!

On Sunday 3 November 2013 the Cure for Life Foundation invites you to join them for a walk in Centennial Park in aid of cancer research. Called the Walk4Life, the event starts at 10am and all of the details – as well as registration and donation opportunities – are available on the Walk 4 Life website.
