CHU Dares Wins

Firstly - thank you to everyone who has donated generously to this cause. I cant think of a better one. 

On Friday CHU's employees nationally held an event named "CHU Dares Wins", we even had our own Mike (Fraser) Whitney and Tania (Jacki) Zaietta.

Our teams dared each other and others pledged donations to see the dares carried out. CHU also pledged to matched every dollar raised from the event. 

The dares were fun, creative, amazing and a little bit gross.

We had the following dares take place in our offices around Australia:

1. Stephen Pickering ate a whole Habanero Chilli (followed strangely by a litre of iced coffee)
2. Pauline Stainer dyed her hair GREEN for the cause
3. Kristy Pownal walked over a path of lego.
4. Anne-Maree Paull went out for a drink at the local pub wearing a Merve Hughes Mustache. (it kind of suited her)
5. James Makin and Steve Tchepak wore their bikinis, snorkels and flippers to walk the Mount Street Plaza
6.Rupali Dalvi drank a whole bottle of tobasco
7. Jono Garnham did the hula in lovely though not quite traditional Polynesian dress.
8. All 6'5" of  Leon Pascarl wore sequins and glitter - the glitter beard was inspired.
9. Vicki from the Wiles wild west rapped an original number in her local neighborhood.
10 And never to be forgotten by anyone who saw it poor Kara McInnes ate a bunch of Coriander and I think we can all agree it was the biggest sacrifice of the day.

In other events of the day we had a country wide marshmallow eating competition won by Jaycob 'Squirrel Cheeks' Zivkovic at 30 Marshmallows closely followed by ex professional eater Paul Kwiecien at 29. Unfortunately Paul had a handicap named Daniel on the day... (I had a go at the afterparty and even though I really thought I had stretchy cheeks, I only got 19.)

We also had visits from two local celebrities a pink, glitter bearded Drag King named Dr Dee Fex and CHU's own GOAT Employee Barry Shepherd, who showed up to sign autographs.

All in all, it was a fabulous day that would not have been possible without the hard work of Jacki Allen, Fraser Gow, Rachelle Trayer, Claire Farmer, James Makin, Steve Tchepak, Paul (the AV guy) Sasella, Casey (counts the beans) Kooiman, Leon Pascarl, Pauline Stainer and Naomi Preston

CHU Employees raised $2500 which i think is a truly amazing effort and matched by CHU we end up at $5000.

Well done everyone, for putting your dignity on the line or making a donation, all efforts appreciated :)

Kim

We're taking part in CEO Dare to Cure 2022 in support of Children’s Cancer Institute.

We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, now imagine hearing the words ‘your child has cancer’.

This year more than 1000 families will hear those words and you may not know, but cancer still kills more kids in Australia than any other disease. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer. 

We believe this is three too many, that’s why this year we have agreed to step out of our comfort zone and raise funds to find a cure for the brave kids who face the fear of treatment every single day. 

$5,000 will help us conduct minimal residual disease testing for two children with leukaemia so we can detect their risk of relapse.

Please DONATE NOW

Kids fighting cancer don't need miracles, they need medical research. 

Thanks for your support, you are making a real difference.

Thank you to our Sponsors
