Have you got what it takes?
Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April, 2017
The term ‘comfort zone’ is defined as ‘a situation where one feels safe or at ease’.
For disadvantaged Victorians, life beyond the comfort zone is a gruelling everyday reality, but you can help by stepping out of yours.
On Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April, 200 Altitude Shift participants will abseil 113m (27 stories) down Melbourne’s iconic St James building to raise essential funds for young people in care.
Altitude Shift was established by Anglicare Victoria, providing everyday Victorians with an extraordinary means of helping those less fortunate.
“We need Victorians’ help to raise funds for young people living in out of home care, and in return, we can provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget,” says Anglicare Victoria CEO Paul McDonald.
“If you’re a thrill seeker or have always wanted to give abseiling a go, now is the perfect time to tick it off the bucket-list,” McDonald says.
Participants can register for one of just two-hundred places for $150 and then must fundraise $850 to secure their spot for this unique experience.
Funds raised from the event will go directly towards Anglicare’s youth-focussed programs aimed to help forge a better tomorrow for young people contending with hardship and disadvantage.
The event is open to groups and individuals over the age of 16, with prizes on offer for the most funds raised.
