Where does your money go?


Eureka Climb is a fundraising event that supports two amazing Charity Partners, Interplast and Whitelion.  The money you raise will be split equally between the two charities and help these organisations rebuild young lives.  To read more about these organisations click here.

Interplast - How your fundraising has help...

For Interplast, the funds raised by Eureka Climb participants in 2013 supported teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to empower our neighbouring developing countries . The funding allowed our teams to provide free surgical treatment for patients living with a treatable disability such as cleft lip and palate, burn scar contractures, severe hand injuries resulting from bush knife wounds and growths and tumours. It also allowed us to build the capacity of our neighbouring countries by assisting in the training of the next generation of surgical leaders. By supporting, mentoring and building their knowledge, local medical personnel across the Asia Pacific region will be able to perform these procedures independently. 

Some stats:

  •  For over 30 years, Interplast volunteers have delivered more than 32,000 consultations and performed 21,000 life-changing procedures.
  • Interplast volunteers are made up of surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and other allied health professionals who give up their annual leave to participate in our programs. The annual value of Interplast's volunteer services is conservatively estimated at over two million dollars (AUD).
  • Patients are treated for congenital conditions such as cleft lips and cleft palates as well as acquired conditions such as the release of burns scar contractures, the removal of tumours and injuries.
