Swinging into action for charity fundraising
THE Dawesville Bridge Swing is back.
In a WA first, the highadrenaline swing was set up in December last year and many local thrillseekers took the plunge.
Not-for-profit organisation Urban Descent plans to set up the swing on the 20m high bridge at the end of the year. Urban Descent was created by Terry Hewett to promote philanthropy and foster community connections.
“We seek courage and commitment from both individual and corporate participants to challenge themselves and make a difference in their community while sharing a unique and exciting experience,” he said.
Participants can set up a MyCause fundraising account, with money raised going towards charities such as the Cancer Council, Make-A-Wish Australia and Australian Alzheimer’s Foundation.
