Oscar Runs For The Kids

If you didn’t already know, Oscar the Octopus loves kids. What’s not to love? Free spirited, playful, honest, and most of all, they know how to have fun.

Unfortunately, not all children have a care-free start to life, and not only does this upset Oscar and the team at Yellow Octopus HQ, it drives them to create change.

The Run for the Kids challenge allowed Oscar and his YO Run Team to raise funds and show support to those families going through an unimaginable journey.

All funds raised on the day contributed to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. An incredible 35,160 energetic supporters raised an even more incredible 1.9 million dollars, and this has made Oscar ridiculously happy.

The Yellow Octopus Team would like to take the opportunity to thank all those who helped fundraise for this cause and to those friendly Melbournians who showed Oscar oh-so-much love.
