Face Your Fear: Climber Aileen Conquers the BridgeClimb Sampler

Does your heart race a little bit at the thought of setting foot onto the arches of the Bridge? But you oh so wish you could?

Last November, we called on the people of the world to make a pledge to Face Their Fear and challenge themselves to the BridgeClimb Sampler. Loads of people pledged and we gave away a bunch of these experiences to help them achieve their goal.

Aileen, one of our Face Your Fear winners came to the Bridge recently to take on the BridgeClimb Sampler with her son, Jack.

Aileen penned this sweet poem to describe her experience:

Doing the Sydney Harbour BridgeClimb
With my 15 year old son
Was the ultimate experience
And so much fun
We faced our fears
And took in the sights
We built wonderful memories together
As I overcame my fear of heights


We encourage you to take the first step in your journey to Face Your Fear – make a pledge! Writing down your goal and sharing it with your friends and family for support is a great way to get started. You can do this on our Facebook page.
