On Sunday 17th November, 12 of our team (3 teams of 4) took on the challenging Eureka Climb (www.eurekaclimb.com.au)
Eureka Climb is Australia’s biggest vertical race held at one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, Eureka Tower in Southbank, Melbourne. The climb involved ascending 1642 steps to level 88 of the building (Eureka Skydeck – the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere). Eureka Climb is in the top 20 (amount of stairs) of stair climbs in the world and is host to an Elite Race for some of Australia’s best stair climbers.
The event raised much needed funds for key charity partners Interplast & Whitelion, who are both committed to helping disadvantaged young people.
We at BPS are very involved with Interplast (www.interplast.org.au), with Keith being a member of the board (and having done numerous surgical trips) and several of our staff currently volunteering their time on overseas surgical trips in the Asia Pacific Region.
As part of this event, our teams raised $7,785 to help rebuild young lives.
