The Perth Mint is delighted to announce that we will be the principal sponsor of the 2017 Gallipoli Run, hosted by Athletics Western Australia (Athletics WA).
First held in Perth in 2003, the event encourages the Western Australian community to walk or run the four or eight kilometre course in honour of the Anzacs, celebrating the spirit of mateship and camaraderie which remains their legacy.
This family friendly event is expected to be bigger than ever this year with races taking place in both Kalgoorlie and Perth on Sunday 26 March 2017 and Sunday 23 April 2017 respectively.
With a history of supporting the Returned and Services League (RSLWA) and other veteran support organisations through a variety of military themed commemorative coin programs, we are proud to sponsor this event. Monies raised from the run will be donated to RSLWA, Legacy WA and Athletics WA.
We would love you to be a part of this special commemorative occasion and we hope to see you there!
