QFES Fundraiser- Abseil Aquarius
October 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
> > > SOLD OUT < < <
The QFES Fundraiser is part of the QFES Regional Challenge and aims to raise much needed funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The Townsville Fire Brigade and Outer Limits are putting together a thrilling abseil of one of Townsville’s highest buildings, the Aquarius on the Beach. Amazing views over the city and Magnetic Island might take your mind off your shaky legs as you walk over the edge.
To sign up, you can book online, $40 per person, 100% of the fees will go towards the fundraiser. Minimum age is 16 years.
Together we are raising funds for life support machines called Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Pumps. This lightweight equipment helps transport critically ill children from regional QLD to Queensland Children’s Hospital.
The Xenios ECMO Pump will impact the lives of some of Queensland’s most critically ill children – those suffering from heart and/or lung failure – and help to give them the best possible chance for a successful recovery from a life-threatening condition.
Each machine is $132,000 and the hospital needs four … so let’s see how far we can take this!!
Spread the word and come down to The Strand for an adrenalin pumping abseil.
