A Perth charity event will see hundreds of people climb 50 floors in September raise funds for a number of children’s charities.
Climb for a Smile will take place on Sunday 10 September from 7:30am at Brookfield’s 108 St George’s Terrace, where participants will climb a huge 1,042 steps to the top of the building all in the name of charity.
This year the event, hosted by Rotary WA, will raise funds for The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation, Interplast and End Polio Now. Previous events have raised over $300,000 for charities in the past, and this year the organisers hope that even more people will take part.
‘This is a great opportunity to reach out into the community and give them a way to step up for children’s charities,’ says Jaap Poll, President of Rotary Crawley. ‘The Rotary Club of Crawley is proud to make Climb for a Smile its annual community event to raise funds for eradicating polio, giving new smiles to children and funding research into leukaemia and cancer, thereby making a difference to so many families worldwide.’
Participants can register as individuals or as part of a team here. There’s a maximum of 800 places for entrants, so get involved as soon as you can!
