Indigenous Marathon Project

Maddocks has formed a two year alliance with Rob de Castella’s Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) with the firm to provide pro-bono legal, marketing, professional development and research/library services to the IMP team.

Maddocks is proud of its community involvement and is dedicated to making a difference through supporting socially responsible programs such as the IMP.

The IMP is a social change program that uses marathon running as a vehicle to promote the benefits of healthy living and lifestyles to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and each year a group of young Indigenous men and women are selected to run in the world’s biggest marathon – the New York City Marathon.  With six months of intense training these young people have the opportunity to compete in a significant international sporting event and also serve as ambassadors to their communities.

IMP Founder and Director, Rob de Castella, is delighted with the new relationship and both the IMP and Maddocks are looking forward to further developing the Project, as well as building alliances and assisting with education, career and personal development opportunities for IMP graduates.

The pro-bono alliance is managed out of the Canberra office.
