Event Date: SUNDAY 6 AUGUST 2023


Johnno’s Run is an annual fundraising event organised by Community Living & Respites Services (CLRS). The event supports our community to participate in a coordinated 5km, 10km, or 21.1km run, walk or wheel (mobility aids only) dedicated to raising funds for the Opening Doors Project.

Through our Opening Doors Projects, CLRS builds homes for people with disability in our local community. These projects have so far built 4 homes and 10 units, supporting 20 people with disability to live with greater independence and inclusion within our community. Our current project is building 2, two-bedroom units on Spoonbill Street in Moama.

Get Involved In Your Community, Make New Friends And Improve Services For People With Disability

Johnno’s Run is an annual fundraising event organised by Community Living & Respite Services. The team is a group of community minded people who run, walk or wheel to help raise awareness and funds for the Opening Doors Project.

Our aim is simple – we want you to have fun, meet new people and help raise funds to support people in the community with disability. Johnno’s Run changes lives in many ways, opening the doors to improved fitness for hundreds of people, empowering participants and helping raise money for a fantastic cause.

Help Make A Difference By Raising Much Needed Funds To Build Homes For People With Disability

Being part of the Johnno’s Run team is a great way to help out the Echuca Moama community. All the funds raised go towards our Opening Doors Project which builds innovative homes for people with disability.

The Project provides support and increases the independence of those in the community living with physical or intellectual disability. One of the most rewarding aspects about participating is the satisfaction you gain when you see the homes being built – you actually get to see the result of the funds you raised!
