We are very excited to launch a brand new IMP initiative – the Speaker Scholarship Fund.

As the profile of IMP, a core program of Indigenous Marathon Foundation, continues to grow, IMP Graduates are often invited to be guest speaker at a range of corporate, community and education events.

The IMP now has 65 Graduates with incredible, life-changing stories to share, and an ability to inspire and motivate others to take on challenges and reach their goals.

They will make you laugh and make you cry, but most of all they will demonstrate first-hand the incredible capacity Indigenous Australians have to achieve despite significant adversity and sacrifice.

The growing interest in the stories of IMP Graduates has ignited the opportunity for a Speaker Scholarship Fund (SSF) to be established, to assist with ongoing education and training expenses for our Graduates.

If you would like to engage an IMP Graduate to speak at your next corporate function, please contact our office on (02) 6162 4750.

We thank you for your support of the IMP and our Graduates, who continue to use running to drive change in their communities – long after they finish their marathon.
