MIN­IS­TER PLUNGES

The West Australian - - INSIDE COVER -

Any­one who took the Cen­tral Park Plunge yes­ter­day, ab­seil­ing 220m down the side of the Cen­tral Park build­ing in the CBD, is pretty brave.

Per­haps none more so than Dis­abil­ity Ser­vices Min­is­ter Stephen Daw­son.

Af­ter all, as re­ported in In­side Cover, this is a bloke who once broke his toe while Ir­ish danc­ing.

If danc­ing has proved to be haz­ardous to your health, step­ping off the edge of a 52-storey build­ing could be down­right suicidal.

De­spite this wor­ry­ing his­tory of bad luck, Daw­son took the plunge yes­ter­day — and, even bet­ter, he did it dressed as Spi­der-man, at the re­quest of his four-year-old son.

Of course, it’s all for a good cause, with the min­is­ter rais­ing more than $2600 for Ca­hoots, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­vides in­clu­sive op­por­tu­ni­ties for chil­dren and young peo­ple liv­ing with dis­abil­ity.

You can do­nate to Daw­son’s fundrais­ing page, or that of any of the plungers, by vis­it­ing cen­tral­park­plunge.com.au.
