Events are a great way to bring together friends, family and colleagues and can be as small or as large as you can manage. For example, maybe you could organise one of the following?
- A morning tea
- A picnic
- A garage sale
- A cake stall
- A quiz night
- A sponsored walk, swim or cycle
- Your own idea!
Anthony’s Fundraising Story
In June 2013, Anthony Spadaro became the father of triplets who were born at 27 weeks. Anthony is studying for a Bachelor of Sport Science degree and when he was given an assignment to organise a sporting event for charity, he jumped at the chance to do something for Life’s Little Treasures Foundation. Anthony organised a run/walk of the Lyrebird Track, a very steep 5km trail from One Tree Hill in the Dandenong Ranges. Around 30 people took part and together they raised over $2,400 – we know there were some very sore legs but we are extremely grateful for all their hard work!
Anthony’s story also inspired fellow classmate Stacey Dolliver to organise a fundraising fitness class. The participants at Freedom Health & Wellness in Hobart raised $255 – thank you!
