The Virtual Run is a fundraising initiative for the IMF.

It was started by IMF supporter, Sarah Jefford, in December 2014. Sarah initiated and managed this Virtual Run – an event to encourage people across the nation to run during the month of December, track their kilometres and notch up their first cumulative 5km, 10km half or full marathon!

Following from the success of the inaugural event in December 2014, the Virtual Run was held again in both November 2015 and 2016. Sarah organised the event to coincide with the IMP squad running the New York City Marathon.

This event has been made possible through Sarah’s hard work and commitment.

​​In 2017 the Virtual Run will be managed by Sue and Phil Gilbertson, also IMF supporters and volunteers. Sue and Phil have been involved with IMF as supporters since 2015, volunteering at many of the IMF events.

The Virtual Run for IMF is not a business venture, unlike some other Virtual Runs. It is run solely as a fundraiser for IMF.
