It’s now even easier to support Surf Life Saving Queensland through Everyday Hero!
Everyday Hero is an online fundraising platform which gives you the ability to build and customise your own fundraising supporter page, and help us ensure Queensland beaches remain some of the safest in the world.
Once you’ve set up your supporter page and selected Surf Life Saving Queensland as your chosen charity, you can share and link with your friends, family and colleagues and ask them to make a donation to your page. You can even link your Everyday Hero supporter page to your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and start spreading the word about your great work on social media.
To kick things off, our friends at Westpac have once again gotten behind Brisbane’s sister event to the world’s largest run, the brisbanetimes City2South. Taking place on Sunday 14 June, the event gives you the chance to get fit, raise money for your cause of choice, and enjoy a morning running along the beautiful Brisbane River.
Raising money for your favourite cause is so much more fun when you do it with friends! Register as a team for upcoming events, set up a team fundraising page on Everyday Hero (don’t forget the all-important team name and endless costume possibilities), and choose Surf Life Saving Queensland as your charity of choice.
Give something up
Don’t want to run a marathon? No worries, because you can still set up a fundraising page on Everyday Hero for whatever challenge you like. Giving up chocolate for a month? Sacrificing TV for a while? Or perhaps you’re planning on attempting a Dry July? Whatever it is you’re giving up, you can set up your page on Everyday Hero and start raising funds for Surf Life Saving Queensland.
As the state’s peak beach safety and rescue authority, and one of the largest volunteer-based organisations in Australia, Surf Life Saving Queensland relies on community and corporate support to continue protecting beachgoers. Fundraising and donations are put towards the purchase and maintenance of rescue equipment, vital medical supplies and training for our volunteer surf lifesavers as we aim for our vision of zero preventable deaths in Queensland waters.
