Challenge your colleagues at the 2016 Coleman Greig Challenge

The 2016 Coleman Greig Challenge, being held on Friday 21 October, is inviting Western Sydney businesses to get fit, have fun and give back for a worthy cause – with all funds raised supporting Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC), St Gabriel’s School and My Westmead.

“We started the Coleman Greig Challenge three years ago as a way to help Western Sydney businesses support the community. It’s grown enormously and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with local businesses to create the biggest and best event yet in 2016,” said Coleman Greig Principal, Andrew Grima.

“At the end of the day, it’s a fun, simple, and most importantly, an effective way to give back to the community – and, from a personal viewpoint, it’s very rewarding to know the impact you’re having. I’d urge all businesses to take up the Challenge and get involved!”

Western Sydney businesses are invited to attend the Coleman Greig Challenge: Corporate for Community 2016 event launch on Thursday, 31 March from 5.30pm – 7.30pm at Lachlan’s Restaurant, Parramatta Park where they can get a taste of the Challenge to come and find out how their business can be involved.

As a charity, RIDBC relies heavily on fundraising and community support to be able to continue to make a difference to children and adults with vision or hearing loss.

“Fundraising and community support remain the key sources of RIDBC funding and are critical to ensuring the continuation of vital services for children and adults across Australia who are impacted by vision or hearing loss,” said RIDBC Chief Executive Chris Rehn.

“The ongoing support RIDBC receive from corporate fundraisers, such as Coleman Greig, is truly remarkable and we would like to thank all contributing supporters for their passion and energy to help raise much needed funds."
