THE WATERLINE CHALLENGE
Saturday 16th – Sunday 24th November 2024
The Waterline Challenge® is an Australia wide event, which allows teams of participants to raise money for a range of different charities to assist people, animals and the environment to overcome adversity. It is the brainchild of Julian Day who is a three time survivor of childhood cancer. The Challenge is to cover as much as possible of Australia’s entire waterline, including rivers, lakes, and islands during the nominated week. To succeed the teams must accumulate sufficient kilometres to ‘circumnavigate the coastline of Australia’.
You participate as a team of between three to ten members, including the team leader. Pick the charity you wish to support – see the Charities on the website. There is no restriction on who can be part of a team, the only rule is the team leader must be at least 16 years old. The team decides the section of waterline (coast, rivers, lakes, islands) and how far they will travel, the direction they will follow, and their mode of travel. You can be as imaginative as you like.
Finally register your team for the Waterline Challenge at the GIVAR donation website. Every participant is asked to try and raise a minimum of $200. We encourage you to gain sponsorship from family, friends, work, and clubs.
