Our Events

We have had another successful year for our biggest fundraiser, Abseil for Youth.

 

abseil 400 x 400

Abseil for Youth is a buzz and this year was no exception.
 
Knowing that funds raised from this event help young people overcoming issues like homelessness, substance addiction and mental health issues, we increased our fundraising target to $280,000.
 
Thanks to the generous and committed abseilers, we have exceeded this target - heading towards the $300k mark.
 
Every dollar counts, so we are thrilled with this result. Congratulations everyone!
 
Fortunately the rain on Thursday only caused a slight disruption and we were able to continue and finish on schedule.
 
Well done to those who got into their dress-ups. We were thoroughly entertained, and you will have some awesome photo evidence to refer back to.
 
We can't thank the volunteers enough who gave up their time to make this event such a success.
 
A special shout out also to Rapid Relief Team, David Goodin, Investa, Urban Descent, TAL, the MC's (you know who you are), Royal Australian Navy, Shellbourne Hotel, Create Engage and No 1 Espresso Cafe.
 
Keep your eyes peeled for the photos and highlights video on our Facebook Page.
 
Next year is going to be even BIGGER and BETTER. If you would like to register your interest for 2019 visit www.abseilforyouth.com 
 
Until next year!
