Byron Bay Lighthouse Run is organised by Lisa Parkes, with the assistance of the Lighthouse Run committee, an amazing group of volunteers and sponsors. Now in its 13th year, the run has grown from humble beginnings.
The organisers take no money from the event at all – all money raised goes to charity. Each year we select different charities. We consider that some charities get huge support so, we try to go for the underdog and smaller ventures. We also like to keep in touch with projects to see where our money has gone. Our team of committee members, volunteers and sponsors work hard to organise the event. The participants who run or walk pay for the event, so we like to take notice of what happens to the money.
In 2019 we are supporting headspace Lismore and the Women’s Resource Service at the Mullumbimby and Districts Neighbourhood Centre.
