Run for Hope started in 2012, founded by Sarah Powell (a volunteer and ambassador for Pink Hope) and her personal trainer Alannagh Pooley from FullFitment Personal Training. They both wanted to help raise awareness and much needed funds for Pink Hope. In 2017 they decided they would also like the event to raise money for beyondblue​ and so begins the new partnership in 2018.
