One Week to Go!

12th October 2016  

Cams Wharf, Lake Macquarie

Hi Adventurers!

Not long to go now!

Let’s just take a second to remember why we are adventuring into the unknown.

Seven year old Gabe is a huge adventurer and he had a wish to go on the ultimate outback adventure, just like his hero Crocodile Dundee!

It costs Starlight on average $6,500 to make these wishes come true and you can help us be a wish granter too!

If you haven’t reached your fundraising target, now is really the time to drive up those donations to get you there! Just remember if you break down the $10,000 fundraising target, it is $1,000 per person and $2,000 as a team.

The number one reason people donate is because they were directly asked – so ask!

  1. Make it personal and direct and don’t forget to follow up your forgetful friends!
  1. Why not copy and paste the below text and email, text or message this to your friends and family to ask for a donation?

‘In just over a week, I’m taking on the Great Adventure Challenge which is a HUGE 70-90km adventure race in Lake Macquarie.

I will be mountain biking, running, kayaking and coasteering over 6-9 hours, all to help Starlight Children’s Foundation brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

I haven’t reached my fundraising goal of $1,000 just yet, and I need your help to get me there.

Please make a donation to my fundraising page here: (insert your link here!)

If I reach my target, I will give 26 sick children access to a Starlight program and brighten their hospital experience by turning pain and fear into joy and laughter.

Thank you so much in advance for your support!’

Attached is the event program which is everything that you need to know to be GAC ready. It includes what to bring, what to expect, where to be and when!

Please read through it and if you have questions, just let me know.

We need to know who will be there on the day and if you have any dietary requirements.

Please could each of you register through this link?:

Every single person taking part in the event needs to register.

As always, we are in it together so call me or email me whenever you need to chat!

See you soon,
