The LJ Hooker Foundation acted as one of only three name right sponsors at the annual ‘Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn’ event in 2019. This is the first time in it’s 18-year history the event has accepted race category naming rights.
A generous supporter of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation since 2016 and a corporate sponsor of the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn since 2017, the LJ Hooker Foundation acquired naming rights to the Open Male race category.
“The Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn has become one of Sydney’s iconic fun-runs and one of our annual signature fundraising events. Each year, the infamous Awaba Street hill attracts more and more Sydneysiders as well as elite participants from interstate so with the support of race category naming rights sponsors, we can exponentially grow the event to make a greater difference to children in hospitals across Australia,” said Wallaby great and Humpty Dumpty Foundation Ambassador, Phil Kearns AM.
“LJ Hooker Foundation’s race category sponsorship of the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn reflects our ongoing commitment to the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and giving back to the communities in which we live and operate.
“We are proud to partner with the Humpty Foundation to ensure the continued success and growth of this great family event that is helping those in need.
“Through the LJ Hooker Foundation, our national network of offices raises vital funds to donate to charity, and we appreciate the ongoing support from our network,” said LJ Hooker Foundation spokesperson, Sarah Dickson.
The Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn held on Sunday 26 May 2019, helps the Humpty Dumpty Foundation purchase essential and often, life-saving medical equipment for more than 400 children’s hospitals and health services across Australia by simply running, walking, crawling or scaling obstacles 420 metres up Awaba Street, Mosman.
With more than 20 different race categories, there is something for everyone and at all different levels of fitness. For those that like to really “feel the burn”, the high intensity obstacle challenge ‘Hill of Hurt’ will return for its fifth year.
The annual Sydney event was created by Humpty Dumpty Foundation Ambassador and Wallaby legend, Phil Kearns AM almost 20 years ago; and in 2018, raised more than $2.7 million.
