Following on from the great success of 2017, raising over $38,000, the 4K 4Charity Fun Run will once again take place on Saturday 15 September. This unique event offers show attendees a healthy alternative to traditional networking while raising much-needed funding for organisations supporting diversity and inclusion initiatives. This year, all proceeds will benefit a local and global charity - Stichting NewTechKids and Iridescent.
