Who is Andy Rulfs?

Andy Rulfs was a student at Emmanuel College. He loved life, lived with intent, played his trumpet, excelled academically, enjoyed hanging out with friends and family and worshipped God with all his heart. He loved running from the time he was a toddler.

In 2003 he discovered cross-country running and was placed 5th in the 11 year old 800m final at the National Primary Athletics in 2004. For the next 4 years, he represented Queensland in 800m and cross-country receiving Sports’, Academic and Performing Arts awards at the annual Emmanuel College Presentation Evening. Like Eric Liddell, he felt that God had gifted him to run, and to run fast.

In August 2008 he was a member of the 15 years boys Queensland team that placed first at the National Cross-Country Championships. He won the gold medal in his time trial.

In October 2008, although suffering from terrible headaches, he qualified to compete in the 1500m at Nationals. This was to be his last race. He became more and more incapacitated and was finally diagnosed with glioblastoma, a very aggressive brain cancer. He was sustained in those last months by his faith in God, the support of family, friends and his running coach.

Andy lost his race with cancer in June 2009. A life of great potential, cut short.

The Andy Rulfs Tribute Run, as part of The Mozi Run is dedicated to his memory.

In doing so, it is hoped that the funds raised will enable young Mozambican boys and girls to realise their potential by giving them the opportunity for education, denied to over one million Mozambican children.


About the Mozi Run



Who will be participating?

The Mozi Run is an event designed for families, casual and serious runners. The 5km Family Fun Run encourages families to experience some healthy outdoor activity together. The 10km Experienced Circuit is designed to challenge experienced runners and walkers.

Is the event timed?

Participants in both the 5km & 10km will receive a Timing Tile. Times will be emailed to participants in the week following the event.

Do I have to have sponsorship?

You are able to come and participate in The Mozi Run without sponsorship. Your registration fee is part of the funds raised to help support education in Mozambique. However, for just a little extra effort you can help increase the amount we raise for education, by having people sponsor your participation. You also qualify for some awesome prizes for both adults and children from CUA School Fun Run.

Can I participate with a dog or pram?

Runners and walkers are able to participate with a pram so you can bring the whole family. Unfortunately, for safety reasons no dogs will be allowed at the start area or on the Emerald Lakes circuit.

What do I do on the day?

The Mozi Run starts at 2.00pm. There will be a split start for the 10km & 5km run. Please allow enough time to park in the designated parking area off Nerang – Broadbeach Road, walk to the starting point, register and collect your Timing Tile. Bringing along your registration email will help our volunteer staff confirm your registration.


You can also make a donation for education in Mozambique, as you register.

When do sponsorships close?

You will be able to receive sponsorships up until Wednesday 22 March 2017 after which people can still support the work of Mission Educate via our website. CUA Prize Selections must then be made by Friday 24 March 2017.

How do I claim my prize?

The Mozi Run partners with CUA School Fun run to provide great fundraising incentives for those who participate in collecting sponsorships. Prizes can be selected online through our website. This will be available by logging into the website from Saturday 18 March 2017 using your email address or the login email you used when registering. Final prize selection must be made by Friday 24 March 2017 You will receive an email with information of when and where to collect your prizes.

What Happens if it Rains?

The Mozi Run will still occur if it is raining lightly. The running track has a sealed all purpose service. Organisers may cancel the event if the weather conditions are extreme and hazardous. A cancellation notice will be placed on The Mozi Run website and announcements will be broadcast on Juice 107.3 FM on the day. In the event of a cancellation, all monies donated will still be donated to Mission Educate and tax deductible receipts will be sent and prizes awarded accordingly.

What happens if someone is unable to attend The Mozi Run?

If a situation arises where you or someone registered in your family is unable to attend The Mozi Run, any sponsorship donations received will be donated to Mission Educate and receipts issued accordingly. The absent registered participant will still qualify for the CUA Incentive Prizes based on the funds receipted. The registration fee is not refundable.

What percentage of funds raised at The Mozi Run goes to the school in Mozambique?

There is not a set percentage donated from the funds raised. The simplest way to answer would be to say "As much as possible".
The organisation of The Mozi Run has associated costs involved. As much as possible, these costs are covered by corporate sponsorship, which varies from year to year. Some costs are involved with the incentive prizes provided by CUA School Fun Run for those who choose to be part of that promotion. These costs vary according to the number of people participating each year and the prizes selected. The Mozi Run is staffed by many volunteer helpers who contribute their time and expertise without cost.
Each year The Mozi Run is able to contribute significantly to the day to day running costs of the King of Kings School in Mozambique. These costs include teachers' salaries, text books, education resources and equipment and the provision of water, electricity and telephone. This enables the school to give access to education to orphans and children from families severely affected by poverty.
