Join Griffo's Challenge on Friday 11 August for the fourth River Loop Run along the Brisbane River. Raise awareness and funds for Icon Cancer Foundation and Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. If you can't run, you can still donate to Griffo's Challenge



Family, friends and supporters of Damian ‘Griffo’ Griffin started the challenge in 2012 to help their good friend and support charities that he has been personally associated with. The Challenge is a river loop run around Brisbane city and is has been described as a show of solidarity, rather than a race. It’s about staying invincible, no matter what. Since inception, Griffo’s Challenge was held in 2012, 2013, 2015 and now for a fourth time on 11th August 2017.
