About The Bolt

About The Bolt: Brisbane's FUNNEST Fun Run/Wheel/Walk!

The Bolt Fun Run is back in 2022, and we want YOU to take flight with us! The idea is simple - kit yourself out in red (Budgy Smugglers optional) for Youngcare and run, walk or wheel 5km for young people with physical disabilities.

You don’t have to be an athlete… just keen to create freedom, dignity and choice for young Australians with physical disabilities being left behind in aged care. So be bold and BOLT for Youngcare!

Sunday 31 July 2022
8:00am – 11:00am 

The fun begins from 8:00am. Bolting waves will be announced shortly!

University of Queensland - St Lucia Campus. Starting at the Recreation Precinct Playground along Sir William MacGregor Drive at the University of Queensland, St Lucia.


That's 5 kilometres of running, wheeling or walking!

We ask that our BOLTERS fundraise as much as possible to help young people with physical disabilities. The more funds we raise, the more lives we can change! You can find fundraising ideas, tips and tools by clicking the button below:

About Youngcare

Too many young Australians with high physical support needs are being left behind. These young people deserve the freedom to live where and how they want — and it’s up to all of us to make that happen.

Youngcare is fighting for freedom, dignity and choice for young people with high physical support needs to choose where they live, who they live with, and how they live their lives.

Youngcare achieves this through developing aspirational Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), advocating for much-needed policy change, delivering vital grants programs, and providing education, advice and pathways through our free support service.
