    Yes, we have a great support team of medical staff who will be present at the Start, Finish and each checkpoint.

    Fundraising

    Meet Me in The Middle is an event supporting Starlight Children’s Foundation and we would recommend that all our participants set a fundraising goal of $500 per person for Starlight. However, it is not compulsory and you will still be able to enter the event if you do not reach your goal.

    100% of the funds less Everyday Hero’s fee will be passed on to Starlight Children’s Foundation. Due to the high event costs that we incur, Starlight will also provide Meet Me in the Middle with 27.5% of funds raised to go towards the running of the event.
