Going the distance for Kids Helpline

By: yourtown 27 May 2015 Kids Helpline

Kids Helpline wouldn’t exist without the support of donors and fundraisers.


Amazingly generous and committed people like Nic Droste, an adventure racer, who ran 100km to support Kids Helpline. “I completed The North Face 100, Australia’s premier 100km trail running event, held in the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains National Park."

“The race was not easy, not that I expected it to be. I started really well. Unfortunately, I hurt my ankle around the 50km mark which meant I needed to walk the entire second half of the course. I pushed on all through the night with the help of my support crew, my parents and my wife Catherine.”

“I finished on Sunday morning in a time of 26 hours and 32 minutes. It was an amazing experience and an incredible challenge both mentality and physically.”

Thanks to everyone who supported my fund raising campaign for Kids Helpline and for your support in helping me achieve this life goal. Without you I would not have made it through the race. Nic Droste.


The funds raised will be used to support our team of counsellors who answer the calls, emails and online messages from children and young people in need.

We are so grateful to Nic for his heroic effort. You can show your admiration for Nic by donating here.

A 100km challenge is beyond most of us but community fundraising doesn’t have to be that extreme. It is as simple as running around the park. Whether you are running in an ultra-marathon, walking in a fun run, or even celebrating a wedding or a birthday, all you have to do is create your own fundraising webpage to let everyone know what you are doing.
