Cool Night Classic  

Thursday, 23 October


Riverstage - Botanical Gardens


The PwC Cool Night Classic is an annual event in Brisbane which sees participants run 5km or walk 3km through the Southbank Parklands and Kangaroo Point Cliffs, to raise money and awareness for Queensland charities.  Each year, this ever-popular event attracts thousands of participants from the corporate and local community.  Entertainment kicks off from 4.30pm, with events from 5.45pm.  Youngcare is a chosen charity partner and has been awarded the responsibility of race marshalling the event. 


Volunteers are required to arrive at the Youngcare marquee near the Riverstage - Botanic Gardens at 3.30pm for orientation and final briefing.  You will then be taken to your marshalling station by a supervisor.  Main duties will be to keep the runners on route and manage pedestrians.  You will finish your shift by approximately 6.45pm, when you are then welcome to return to the Riverstage and join in the music and festivities.  Dinner vouchers, Youngcare T-shirts, caps and Hi-Vis vests will be provided for the event.


Christmas Wrapping

Youngcare is the chosen charity of Brookside Shopping Centre at Mitchelton, on Brisbane’s northside.  This year we aim to have our best Christmas wrapping period yet.  From Saturday 13 December to Wednesday 24 December, we’re asking you to put on your best Santa hat and flex your folding fingers for a few hours of present wrapping.

Grab a team of four and get into the festive spirit! Singing is encouraged. All we require from our volunteers is a desire to wrap the perfect present; all equipment will be supplied. Parking at Brookside Shopping Centre is free.
