Drop Your Boss - Waikato - 8th April, Deloitte Building, Anzac Parade Bridge


 

Matthew Cooper has signed up to abseil down the Deloitte Building to raise money for our youth. 

He has been allocated a a fundraising target of $500 with the aim for all droppers (up to 50 people) to raise more than $30,000 for running programmes for our Waikato youth. You can read more about the programmes here or via the facebook page.

A givealittle page has been set up and any donations are extremely appreciated for this valuable fundraiser. 

All droppers choose an abseil song for the day - many tongue in cheek such as Van Halen's Jump which is always a favourite, as well as Learning to Fly by Tom Petty - and Matthew has chosen Kenny Rogers 'The Gambler'; quite appropriate as he takes a gamble on his life!

Check out the awesome video from last year below, or get more information and see who has already signed up from the website​.



Drop Your Boss receives amazing support from Deloitte, Visualist and First Step Outdoors - who make sure the droppers are safe, comfortable and confident on the day.

So come on down and check out Matthew's big drop (approximately 1.30pm he will be abseiling). We'd love to see you there!
