Finish the Race is a free community event, organised by Micah Challenge, an international organisation which speaks out against poverty and injustice.

To remind the Government of the commitment they made by signing the United Nations Millennium Development Goals in 2000 with the aim to halve world poverty by 2015, Micah Challenge actively campaigns to get attention for this cause. But if that all sounds a bit difficult, don't despair. All you need to do to support the cause is turn up to this totally free community event.

There will be lots of games and activities such as a jumping castle, face painting, balloon animals and relay races. Radio station 96five will also be there with Romeo the Radio Dog.

Special Guest Speaker Dave Martin from World Vision will deliver a message on world poverty. Listen to what your local politicians (Labor candidate Michael Gilliver and Greens' candidate Tryone D'Lisle) have to say about this issue as well. Admire the Make Poverty History photo exhibition, browse the stalls from Oxfam Australia, World Vision and TEAR and enjoy a free Fair Trade afternoon tea to top off the afternoon.
