SDMF's annual major fundraising event, Abseil for Youth has launched for 2017. Will you be brave enough to take the challenge? Dare your friends or work colleagues or sponsor an abseiler!

0475 Day 1 Investa Abseil SDMF 20th Oct 2016 400 x 400 June 2017




Abseil for Youth, proudly supported by Investa, challenges everyday people to face their fear of heights for the ultimate adrenalin rush! All of this while supporting young Australians struggling with addiction, mental illness, homelessness and unemployment. The annual event brings together hundreds of people passionate about experiencing life to the fullest. Sign up now and be part of a truly unique and fun event in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

Step outside your comfort zone and step off the edge of a 33 storey building as a lone thrill-seeker, a group of mates, or make it your next team building activity!

Since 2010, Abseil for Youth has raised funds for youth drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, Triple Care Farm. The experience of facing your fears and rising to the challenge is something that each young person goes through as they make the tough decision to turn their lives around and seek help.

Help us raise more than $260,000 to support the Triple Care Farm program and young Australians desperate to turn their lives around.

Event Details:

  • Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October
  • 1 Market St, Sydney
