The Wishlist Fun Run is an annual event that encourages people to join and walk, run, skip or even jump in order to fundraise while supporting patients from the Sunshine Coast.
The event started in 2019 and continues to grow stronger each year.

The event was founded in 2019, and have since raised a significant amount of money for Wishlist, which is a not-for-profit organisation that provides 100% of all the funds raised to contribute to service support, medical equipment, research, and staff scholarships for the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.
The Wishlist Fun Run is a one-day event that takes place in October each year. Even spectators and supporters will have loads of fun at the event because there are activities planned out for all: these include massagers, live entertainment, barbecues, food stalls, drinks, a jumping castle for kids, face painting, and so much more.
The races begin around 7am-7:30am while the Kids Dash starts an hour later. All of these by the beautiful Lake Kawana, which is a man-made waterway that has become a popular tourist attraction especially for visitors who love water sports. It’s particularly well-loved for canoeing, kayaking, dragon boat racing, outrigging, and motorised boats while its foreshores have tracks made for walking and biking.
For those who want to help Wishlist beyond the event, you can donate directly to them. Patrons can also choose a cause, and it’s good to note that their operational expenses are already covered by commercial enterprises. They pledge over $1 million annually to support Sunshine Coast patients as well as their families.
The Wishlist Fun Run is a terrific way to show your support for patients all while having a great time getting fit.
