Climb for a Cause 2022
BridgeClimb's inaugural Climb for a Cause charity event raises over $70,000 for Black Dog Institute
BridgeClimb Sydney would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all those who stepped up and participated in the inaugural Climb for a Cause charity event in support of Australia's leading mental health research organisation Black Dog Institute on Sunday the 1st of May 2022.
The event raised over $70,000 in funds and awareness for Black Dog Institute, which will allow them to continue working to improve the lives of people impacted by mental illness through ground-breaking research, national education programs, and various support services.
More than 550 people from across the country ascended the iconic arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge throughout the day, guided by an expert Climb Leader on a route unique to the event. As well as enjoying the 360-degree spectacular views of sunny Sydney, Climbers learnt about the fascinating history of the Harbour Bridge and important information surrounding mental health.
Black Dog Institute representatives and sporting identities including Associate Professor Fiona Shand, Olympic sprinter Steve Solomon, and former water polo athlete Danielle Spitty also scaled to the Summit of the Bridge as well as hosting mindfulness sessions for attendees post-Climb.
Since 1998, BridgeClimb has strived to make Climbing for good causes a focus, and the inaugural Climb for a Cause event is a major step forward in BridgeClimb's Bridge to Better mission.
