I'm time-pressed and always counting the pennies as a single-mum writer, so going out has to be worth the lipstick. It's the year of discovering tantalizing Melbourne and, sometimes, a tease of Adelaide's treasures. Join me.
What sends you over the edge? Is it cold coffee? Loud noise? Crowded trams? Perhaps you need an Altitude Shift. Victoria's most vulnerable children have sent Anglicare right over the edge and they want to take 300 of you with them. In possibly the most adventurous activity to raise real cash for foster kids, Victoria's largest foster care provider is asking thrill seekers to abseil down a Melbourne skyscraper and raise funds that will service true support, stability and a sense of hope every night for the 400 and more children unable to live with their natural families.
Super heroes are welcome, so if you fancy feeling like Spiderman or Cat Woman, announce to the world that you are sliding down a tall building (not necessarily in a single bound) and ask all who know you to push cash if that impresses them in any way. However, mere mortals can do this too. Just collect $850 for Anglicare and get ready to tick that bucket list.
Some daring fiends take the challenge face first, and even run down the side of the skyscraper. Regardless of your ability, fitness or shape, the 100 percent safety record of Zenith Events, who will run the ropey side of things, is guaranteed to make your day, as qualified professionals prepare and guide each participant.
If you need a new challenge, why not reduce the daily challenge for foster kids at the same time. Creating positive, lasting change for children who need your lifeline will take us all to new heights. See more here.
