Climb for a Smile with hundreds of people on Sunday 10 September! Participants will walk or run up 50 floors (that’s 1,042 steps) of Brookfield’s 108 St George’s Terrace to raise funds for children’s charities including Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.).
Hosted by Rotary WA, Climb for a Smile kicks off from 7:30am on Sunday 10 September. Corporate professionals through to school students will be walking or running up 50 floors to raise money for the charities. The climb will only take 10 minutes up to one hour depending on your fitness level. Register now!
One of the climbers on the day will be Mark Daniels, a 24-year-old Through Knee Amputee currently serving in the Royal Australian Navy, who will be going up the stairs with a prosthetic leg. After a near fatal motorbike crash in December 2015 where he lost his leg, Mark now dedicates himself to keeping fit and motivating others by using his story to inspire and educate. Mark explains why he wants to participate.
“These kids are facing something that most of us couldn’t even comprehend as adults let alone as a child. I want to show them that their disabilities don’t limit their abilities at all, when life throws you a curve ball you’ve got to hit back as hard as you can. They’ve been given the short straw and it’s going to be a huge journey but as long as they keep pushing, then they will reach the top.”
