Leader's Leap - Central Coast

I'm fundraising for...

Northern NSW Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service which changes outcomes in our community every day.

I have accepted the Leaders Leap challenge to abseil down 7 stories from the top of Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific on Friday 26 February 2021

This event will not only challenge Leaders' fear of heights from their 7 storey platform, it is also an opportunity to reflect on the vital work of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew, who regularly winch people to safety from the bush, ocean and hard to access locations.

Living on the coast I think we are all aware of the Westpac Rescue helicopter and often see it hovering overhead. With my kids I find myself often pointing it out as it flies by. It’s a bittersweet site to see knowing they are on the way to help someone in need. But realising there is someone who is in bad shape and needs the service.

Thankfully I don’t know anyone directly who has needed their help. But I’m constantly reminded of them as they fly over. Just a couple of weeks ago we were woken early in the morning to the chopper flying low and landing at the local sports field to help someone in need.

As a bit of an adventurer myself I remember seeing people abseiling off the Crown plaza building and thinking that would be pretty cool to do. But never thought I would get the chance. Now I have it. I love a good adrenaline rush so when the chance came up to do this while supporting an amazing organisation, I just couldn't resist. 

Its been a hard year for so many so any donation would be amazing for the wonderful cause. Feel free to share my page with your friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for rising up to support Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.  

Thank you to my Sponsors

Mike - I am not sure why I am paying you to do this as I would love to do it myself! Good luck. I did the same off the Harbour Bridge Pylon in my 20's and it was scary as! Not as high as you though.
