Surf Coast Century Fundraiser
We’re excited to have partnered with the Surf Coast Century ultra marathon event in 2023.
As the official charity partner, we raised much need funds to support our Foster Care program. It takes a village to raise a child and we can all play a role in strengthening our community. We thank every person who supported our Surf Coast Century teams this year and congratulate every single runner who ran on the day.

Lace up those sneakers and run for Meli!
Meli is the official charity partner for the Surf Coast Century, a spectacular 50km and 100km ultra marathon race for solo runners and relay teams in the Great Ocean Road on Saturday 16 September.
Make your run count on and off the track, by raising funds for Meli to support our Foster Care Program.
Every night in Geelong and on the Surf Coast, there are children who do not have a safe and nurturing home. At Meli, we believe every child deserves a home.
Funds raised through the appeal support the important work of foster carers and contribute to the wellbeing of children in care.
By running for Meli, you are not only investing in your own physical health and wellbeing, you could help change someone else’s life.
Complete the 50km, 100 km race as a solo, or gather some friends or colleagues and share the load as a team.
If you’re interested in running for Meli in 2024, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in contact with you next year!

Not a runner? Make a donation to Foster a Future
Every night in Geelong and on the Surf Coast, there are children who do not have a safe and nurturing home. This September, we’re raising funds to ensure every child has a place to call home.
Funds raised through the Foster a Future Appeal will support the important work of Meli foster carers and contribute to the wellbeing of children and young people in care.
It takes a village to raise a child and while we can’t all be foster carers, we can all play a role in strengthening our community.
