Our Central Park Plunge For MSWA Raised $10,279 For Those Living With Neurological Conditions

So Perth and Globe 24-7 recently joined forces to raise funds and awareness for MSWA by participating in the Central Park Plunge, an annual event held in Perth’s CBD. 

The Central Park Plunge, run by Zenith Events, allows individuals and teams the chance to abseil from the top of Central Park Tower (the Rio Tinto building) as a way of raising funds for charities. It’s Perth’s tallest building and a 220-metre abseil to get to the bottom. 

Last Sunday (November 14th) was the big day! We faced our fears, unleashed our inner adrenaline junkies, and abseiled from the very top of the building. 

In fitting fashion (pun intended), we set ourselves a target of raising $10,000. If we reached this mark, we committed to taking the plunge dressed in Spiderman suits. 

Well, target achieved! We raised a massive $10,279.75 for MSWA and rocked the Spidey suits.

In total, across all plungers, MSWA was able to raise $94,684.82 which is absolutely massive. 

All money raised will go towards helping people living with neurological conditions in Western Australia, by providing vital support services and research funding. Find out more about MSWA here
