CEO Dare to Cure
OUTDOOR FUNDRAISING EVENT
An event we have produced for the past 4 years for the Children’s Cancer Institute which is full of emotion and generosity, love and support. It’s an event that we are incredibly proud to be a part of.
The event premise is simple – we ask participants to first fundraise, and then face a fear and complete a dare which might involve snakes, spiders, cockroaches, chillies, heights, or walking on glass or hot coals. The idea behind the dare is that the discomfort the participant feels in that moment will never compare to the pain and discomfort a child feels when they’re experiencing treatment for cancer. This is where we come in.
Our role is to manage the production and build, design and execute the challenges, manage our wonderful MC Cam Knight and all event suppliers, manage the venue and all required event / covid documentation, staffing and onsite logistics and simply produce a seamless activation from start to finish.
Four years ago, CEO Dare To Cure’s fundraising goal was $700,000. In 2021, we raised over $1.5 million (and counting). When we started in 2018, we had about 50 or 60 executives sign up – this year there were 160 executives. The success has been so great, we’ll be launching two events in 2022 – one in Sydney and one in Melbourne.
How we all beat this fundraising goal in 2022, is next year’s challenge!
