It is true that events can be a fun thing to do, an item to tick off the bucket list, a challenge or simply an opportunity to mix up your routine and try something a little bit different. These are all great things, but events also have a lot more to offer.
Getting involved in charity events not only challenges individuals, but provides opportunities for team engagement, networking and more - all of this while also supporting a worthy cause.
Investa Abseil for Youth is a great example of an event with a personal gain as well as being a means for you to support a worthwhile cause. This thrilling 135m abseil down a Sydney skyscraper is a unique and challenging experience that raises funds to give young people the support they need to overcome addiction to drugs like ice while caring for their health and they prepare for a brighter future.
John, a participant from the 2016 Abseil for Youth shared, "the experience was rewarding on multiple levels. By participating in the event I was supporting young Australians in need, overcoming my own fears and also bonding with friends and colleagues while we were all pushing our comfort zones. It was an experience I won't forget."
