Bringing together local leaders and rakatahi
The Toss the Boss event is pretty simple. Local leaders fundraise a nominated amount within their community for the opportunity to abseil 35 metres from the upper service gantry of the Forsyth Barr Stadium. Southern Youth Development sets up a givealittle page for each participant - which also enables a leaderboard for a bit of friendly competition - and as long as you reach your goal, you get to abseil. The fundraising is done within your own community, so encouraging people to donate and share the story of Southern Youth Development is essential.
If you've never fundraised before, don't worry! The friendly tīma at sẏd has information and support available to you. This opportunity is available for all leaders in the community, including community groups, schools and businesses.
