Suncorp in the Community

At Suncorp, we value the communities in which we live and work. As well as providing Australians with a range of banking, insurance and investment services, we’re also focused on supporting some amazing programs and initiatives. From sponsoring events to providing much-needed assistance to charities and research organisations, we’re dedicated to getting out into the community and making a real difference to people’s lives.

Blackmores Sydney Running Festival

Suncorp Bank is proud to be a Major Partner, and official Bank of the iconic Blackmores Sydney Running Festival event.  Since it was first run in 2000, the annual Running Festival has grown to become one of the major community events on the Sydney calendar. In 2012, over 34,000 participants took part and raised over $1.9 million dollars for charity.  Since the inception of the event, over $10  million dollars has been raised for charity.

Our staff not only participate in the race, they are also part of the 1300-strong team of Suncorp Bank Volunteers. These volunteers work hard behind the scenes, manning our aid stations and help desks to make event day fun for everyone and without whom the event would not be possible.  On event day, our volunteers also encourage participants and spectators to stay SunWise by distributing complimentary sunscreen  during the event.

 The date for the 2013 event has been confirmed as Sunday 22 September. Online entries are scheduled to open from mid March. For more information and to register, visit www.sydneyrunningfestival.com.au
