Indigenous Marathon Foundation

The Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF) is a health promotion charity established in 2009 by world marathon champion and 1983 Australian of the Year, Robert de Castella. The IMF celebrates Indigenous resilience and achievement by using running to drive change, enhance pride, self belief and courage, and create inspirational role models throughout Australian Indigenous communities. The IMF umbrellas four key programs aimed at improving the lives of Indigenous Australians and celebrating Indigenous resilience and achievement:

• Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP)

• Deadly Running Australia (DRA)

• Indigenous Communities for Activity and

Nutrition (I-CAN)

• FrontRunners (specifically focussed on

IMP Graduates)

Through running and physical activity, the IMF is significantly impacting Indigenous communities nation-wide and changing lives of Indigenous Australians. Our programs are dedicated to empowering IMP Graduates, investing in Indigenous communities and demonstrating the positive physical and mental health benefits of adopting an active and healthy lifestyle. The Foundation is expanding its operations within communities around the country while it looks to provide opportunity where it would otherwise not exist - and your assistance directly helps us to do so.
