Collins Hume 12

Byron Coast Charity Walk 12km

Accountants Crunch the Sand (not just the numbers)

On 22 May, Collins Hume is putting up a team to raise much-needed funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

Every dollar raised contributes to keeping the Rescue Helicopter Service available 24/7, 365 days a year. Each of our team has a personal goal to individually raise $250 per person.

Adding to that, Collins Hume has kicked in for registration fees and team uniforms, but we need more help.

This year, we'll be setting out in three teams covering three courses – 12 kms, 24 kms or 36kms. We're asking for as many people as possible to choose a course and back us to finish.

Current fundraising leader Chris Priester said, "I volunteer with a rescue organisation and have seen first-hand the very good work that the Rescue Helicopter pilots and crew do to support the community."

"Whether it is transporting casualties who require urgent medical care or extricating people from areas that would otherwise be too dangerous to reach the Rescue Helicopter has proven to be an essential life-saving tool.

"This is my fifth walk to help raise funds for this valuable service. Only last year our grandson was flown from Lismore to Gold Coast University Hospital for emergency treatment which saved his life," added Val Anderson.

Collins Hume fundraising organiser Kim Roy said, "I'm really proud to be part of a team of out there individuals who are willing to get up from behind the desk and have some fun while raising money for a great cause."

Every dollar we raise helps to keep the Rescue Helicopter flying 24-7 for those in need. Please support our team's fundraising efforts to keep helicopters and crews ready to respond when needed.
