The White Balloon Day Coastal Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K are held on White Balloon Day, Braveheart's signature awareness campaign on Friday, 7 September 2018.
White Balloon Day is a highlight of Child Protection Week (September 2 to 8) and brings together families, schools, governments, police, survivors, celebrity ambassadors, corporates and businesses for the common goal of child protection.
