On Friday 20 October, GlobalX staff will join the Coleman Greig Challenge to raise vital funds for newborn care and children with special needs.
GlobalX’s corporate team will be running, riding and walking alongside other businesses to reach the fundraising goal of $175,000.
These funds will be used to purchase a variety of equipment for My Westmead, the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) and St Gabriel School.
GlobalX CEO Peter Maloney, who is part of the team, said that GlobalX was looking forward to participating in the challenge.
“The funds raised during the Coleman Greig Challenge directly benefit some of the most vulnerable people in our community; premature babies and children with special needs,” he said.
“The equipment for My Westmead will provide life-saving support for premature babies at a critical time in their lives, while the technology purchased by the RIDBC will help children with hearing and vision impairment to thrive, rather than fall behind in their education.”
“The funds will also have an important impact at St Gabriel School, with their refurbished playground designed to foster social skills for children with special needs.”
“These are causes that will have on-going, positive impacts for hundreds of Australian children, so we couldn’t be more excited about getting involved.”
Challenge ambassadors including two-time world hurdling champion Jana Pittman and Rio Olympian Michelle Jenneke will participate on the day.
Now in its fifth year, the Coleman Greig Challenge has raised almost $400,000 and has grown by 400 per cent since it debuted in 2013.
