Team Bijl on the way to a new goal of $5000!

Hello everyone,

Well, the newsflash is that we are certainly kicking some goals here at Team Bijl!!!

Tonight we ticked over our $4000 fundraising goal, upped from the starting number of $2000 - so we are thrilled to have doubled our original target! With a week to go, anything is possible.

With our team captain Mel in the home stretch of her 20km goal, and strong showings by Rachael, Tash and Kathryn, we are confident that we can inspire you all to donate to this great cause. Our aim now is to get our fundraising up to the $5000 mark and finish in style!

So on Friday morning, Team Bijl is coming together for a mega lap swim at the Willoughby Leisure Centre. Come and cheer us on from 8-9am if you want to see us walk the talk (or maybe that's swim the talk?) - and keep on sponsoring us! 

cheers

Team Bijl 

Bijl Architecture jumps in the swim to save lives!

Watch the land animals vs the water babies as Team Bijl takes on the challenge of racking up the kms in the pool! 

We're doing Laps for Life this March because every day, one young Aussie takes their own life – and that's one too many.

Every dollar you donate to Team Bijl's fundraising page will help ReachOut provide all young Aussies with the support they need to be happy and well. 


Thank you to our Sponsors
