IS FUNDRAISING COMPULSORY? YOU BET.
IT'S GREAT FOR YOUR HEAD AND YOUR HEART.
"Prior to the event I was terrified to fundraise. I have since discovered how profoundly rewarding it is contributing to humanity." Melbourne Coastrekker 2018
"I had the most amazing experience... It was the hardest thing I have ever done but it was one of the most enjoyable fundraisers I have ever taken part in." Sydney Coastrekker 2017
Coastrek is one of the most successful fundraising events in Australia, and over the past 10 years we've raised over $25 million for charity. This has transformed the lives of millions of people in Australia and around the world.
Each team of four commits to a fundraising goal of $2000. This is because fundraising for a great cause connects us to a larger purpose, which is scientifically proven to boost our mental wellbeing. When you do amazing things for others, you feel amazing. Super amazing. It's an absolute win, win.
Fundraising also helps you commit to your wellbeing goals. It will make the fitness component of the Coastrek challenge easier, as you’ll be committed to following through until you smash across that finish line.
The third reason we want you to fundraise is because it’s fun. There’s so many fabulous, fun things you can do to reach your fundraising goal. The limit is your imagination, so grab your team (and some cheese and wine!) and get brainstorming.
