CAN GIVE DAY 2022 Big Wig Challenge

ONE BIG DAY TO GIVE BACK! Please support me, help change lives...

Why I am fundraising for the Big Wig Challenge this CAN GIVE DAY...

There are no doubt many Canberran’s who know someone who has received life saving care from their local hospital, whether the patient is an infant, a child or an adult.

In my case, I have been the recipient of that care as an infant, as a child and as an adult. I was given my Last Rites at Canberra Hospital when I was only 11 days old, and then went on to have open heart surgery at 5 years of age and again when I was 25 years.

The Challenge for me is simply a small step in thanking the health care staff for everything that they do in caring for the Canberra community, which includes saving lives every single day of the year.


Thank you for your support!

As part of a select group of community leaders, I pledge to abseil down a building at Canberra Hospital on Friday 21st October. But first I must raise a $10,000 Entry Fee. It's all for a great cause!

If you want to see me take the leap, please donate to my Fundraising Page, or that of my Team, to ensure I meet the target.

I want to give patients and their families comfort, understanding and hope through their time in hospital or during treatment, and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of Canberra’s healthcare teams.

You can donate to me and help support exceptional patient care for people in our community, which includes the surrounding region. 

Funds raised go to support research, therapeutic programs, transformations of away-from-bed areas, and the purchase of speciality medical equipment, which enhances the patient experience throughout the year.

Please support my fundraising by making a tax-deductible donation to the Canberra Hospital Foundation for CAN GIVE DAY.
