About Save the Children Australia


Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children.

We work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services.

With more than 90 years working with children, we are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through our long-term development programs.

Creating better lives for children worldwide

We have programs in 31 countries, including Australia, where we work in every state and the Northern Territory.

With the generosity of more than 120,000 Australians, we support millions of the hardest-to-reach and most vulnerable children and young people around the world.

In announcing the partnership, Paul Ronalds, CEO of Save the Children Australia, had this to say:

‘Save the Children Australia is very excited to be the charity partner of The Highland Fling mountain bike marathon. The funds we receive from the event will support our work in Australia and overseas, giving children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.

We’re delighted to continue our extremely close relationship with Huw Kingston, founder of Wild Horizons – the organisation behind The Highland Fling. Huw is an Ambassador for Save the Children Australia and our largest ever individual fundraiser, so we are very pleased that he has seen fit to add another layer to this relationship.’
