We invite you to navigate around our website to learn more about our programs, our graduates and the life-changing impact the IMF is having in regional, remote and city Indigenous communities across Australia.
The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) uses the marathon as a vehicle to promote active and healthy lifestyles to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and celebrate Indigenous resilience and achievement.
Indigenous Communities for Activity and Nutrition (I-CAN) targets primary school aged children and uses fitness and activity to encourage school attendance and address childhood obesity.
Deadly Running Australia is a grassroots initiative established to bring together a number of Deadly Running events, groups, coaches and leaders in communities nationwide.
