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.
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.

Whitelion operates nationally across four states, from six centrally located CBD offices and 17 satellite offices in regional areas.
In 2014, funds raised for Whitelion will contribute to all our youth at risk programs. Whitelion provides assistance to young vulnerable people through employment, mentoring, indigenous and youth programs.
In 2013 Whitelion’s Employment Program supported more than 450 highly disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 24 years in their efforts to find sustainable employment
“The perspective I work from is that they’re a child and there is hope. The past is history, but the future is an opportunity.” Whitelion worker
