For one day only, individuals, groups, and organisations can come together to ascend the magnificent arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge while raising awareness and important funds towards a mentally healthier world.
“Following an incredible inaugural event last year which saw over 550 participants and more than $70,000 raised, we are so excited for the return of Climb for a Cause and to be supporting Black Dog Institute and the outstanding work they do,” said BridgeClimb CEO Deb Zimmer.
As the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan, Black Dog Institute aim to create a mentally healthier world for everyone.
“We know not everyone is getting the help they need and that there’s no one size fits all solution,” said Black Dog Institute Community Fundraising Manager Phoebe Collins. “By connecting the dots, what starts in research results in action, programs and tools that can reduce suicide rates across communities, improve symptoms for individuals, prevent problems before they start and help people to live their best possible life. Incredible events like Climb for a Cause enable us to do just that.”
For those wanting to step up towards a mentally healthier world and take part in Climb for a Cause, simply:
1. REGISTER – Register as an individual or a team and purchase your tickets to the top of the iconic Harbour Bridge. $288 for Adults and $149 for Children (8 to 15 years inclusive). The Adult entry price includes a saving of over 15% off a standard BridgeClimb ticket and a $20 donation provided by BridgeClimb to Black Dog Institute to support Climbers on their fundraising journey.
2. FUNDRAISE – Create a fundraising page, invite friends and family to join, and share it far and wide to let everyone know why raising funds for mental health is important and how others can help.
3. CLIMB – Join BridgeClimb on Sunday 7 May, for an unforgettable special climb event to celebrate fundraising efforts.
Each group of climbers will be guided by an expert Climb Leader on a special route unique to the event. As well as enjoying the 360-degree spectacular views of Sydney, climbers will learn about the fascinating history of the Harbour Bridge and important information surrounding mental health.
Climbers will be treated to a range of surprises and experiences on the day, including a complimentary drink from guest experience partner Nudie Juice in the Relaxation Station and prizes for the top fundraisers.
