Cathy Freeman Foundation

Education changes lives.

The Cathy Freeman Foundation delivers education programs that help broaden horizons and inspire Indigenous students to experience their full potential in school.

The Foundation acknowledges the strength and wisdom that lies within remote Indigenous communities. Our work demands strong and trusting partnerships with community, elders and school leaders. We partner with communities for the long haul, as we journey through the complexities of the work required to create social change.

The vision of the Cathy Freeman Foundation is simple but ambitious: An Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life.

The Cathy Freeman Foundation could not continue to deliver these programs without public support and fundraising through community events. Many people choose to support the Cathy Freeman Foundation by raising funds through their participation in a range of active events throughout the year, including the Melbourne Marathon. This incredible group of people are known as Team Freeman.

Everybody that joins Team Freeman will receive:

  • The chance to meet Olympic champion, Cathy Freeman.
  • Limited release Team Freeman welcome pack, including a Nike Dri-Fit running top, drink bottle, personal sunscreen and carry bag after you've raised $125 on your fundraising page.
  • Exclusive invitation to Cathy Freeman Foundation team marquee for Indigenous entertainment, healthy snacks, beverages, photo opportunities and bag storage.
  • Personal fundraising and event support in the lead up to and on event weekend.
