Swing­ing into ac­tion for char­ity fundrais­ing

Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

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.
