Rise For Rescue


The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has put out a call to communities across Northern NSW to ‘Rise For Rescueand help raise valuable funds for the Service as it heads into what is its busiest period of the year.
Rise For Rescue is a FREE virtual fundraising event for the Service asks participants to rise to their own personal  challenge with a minimum of 30 minutes for 30 days in November at sunrise…or when they rise up.

Walk, run, ride a bike, horse, tractor, swim, surf, paddle, skate, scoot, push a wheelchair, flow with yoga, pilates or meditate, sing, dance or mix it up. An event for all ages and all abilities.
Rise For Rescue is free to enter, with every participant having their own fundraising page where they can blog and log their activities plus share stories and receive donations.

Participants can join as an individual or team - teams can be family, friends, work colleagues, sporting group or school friends.

Prizes are on offer for fundraisers of every level sponsored by
, with weekly prizes on offer for the best Rise For Rescue images, which the Service anticipates will include some spectacular sunrises from across Northern NSW.

Twelve (12) Rescue Club Ambassadors from across Northern NSW have signed on to help inspire participants. Rescue Club members are made up of those who have been flown by the Service and it is hoped that their inspirational rescue stories will be further incentive for participants to ‘rise up’ and participate.
