Remember: Smile and the 'World Smiles With You'
Rotary WA welcomes you to Climb For A Smile 2015 at Brookfields 108 St Georges Terrace, Perth. If you participated previously you will know the climbs were a huge success surpassing all expectations and raising over $300,000 for Rotary causes.
This year we invite you to be part of Climb for a Smile which will be much bigger and better. So why not create a team, encourage your friends to join in and open a fundraising page.
For those new to Climb for a Smile, participants are encouraged to raise funds for their preferred charity as they walk, jog or run up the 50 floors / 1,042 steps via one of the tower stairwells on the morning of Sunday 13 September 2015. Faster climbers are sent off first. In the week prior to the event all climbers are advised of their start time and advised to arrive at the tower at least 20 minutes prior to this time.
Once again in 2015 we are supporting the following causes as well as others introduced by Rotary Clubs and Community Groups as they come on board.
Are you a Community Group?
Community groups looking to participate will need to contact Rob Bunning on 0407 012 214 to register their group. The group form can be found on the 'Downloads page'
