Run for hills to help kids

IT'S time to dust off your joggers for a good cause.

Join the Hills News M2 Run for the Hills on Saturday, October 20, to help raise money for children with disabilities.

Last year 400 athletes and 1500 supporters attended the inaugural eight-kilometre fun run and festival to raise $30,000 for event organiser Reach for the Rainbow.

The foundation supports early intervention services for pre-schoolers with disabilities or delays.

This year money raised will benefit Lifestart, which provides early childhood intervention for children with disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism.

Event ambassadors Channel 10 journalist Magdalena Roze and Youth Olympic hurdler Michelle Jenneke said they were proud to donate their help to give the Lifestart children and their parents skills to "set them up for life".

The run will start and finish on Main Street, Castle Hill, and will be followed by a day-long festival and Sydney Designer Markets for families hosted by event partner Castle Towers. There will be free carnival and pony rides, a kids' zoo, sideshow alley, showbags, sausage sizzles, live entertainment and a free movie screening.
