On Saturday, the 28th of August SunEnergy’s Managing Director Lee Lake will be taking part in The Adelaide City Plunge to raise money for Adelaide Charities.
The Adelaide City Plunge is an event where participants abseil 70 meters (25 storeys!!) down the InterContinental Hotel on North Terrace. An opportunity for participants to challenge themselves to stand in solidarity with those in our community that face daily hardship.
The partnering charities of the Adelaide City Plunge include Ronald McDonald House Charities South Australia, HeartKids and Puddle Jumpers. The event held over two days gives around 200 people the opportunity to raise much needed funds for these important community charities.
The chosen charity by Mr Lake is Puddle Jumpers. A non government, not for profit organisation. Their main goal is to respond to the developmental needs of societies most vulnerable children. They believe that “All kids matter and deserve the right to engage in happy and fun experiences in their life.” Their main priority of their work revolves around children that do not live with their birth parents.
Some of the amazing work done by Puddle Jumpers includes:
- Having regular camps for children filled with engaging activities helping them develop their personality, skills, and education.
- Organising ‘Free Food Nights’ for those who are suffering from food insecurity.
- Arranging birthday cakes for those children who have never had a cake on their birthday before.
- Assist the community in any way they can to benefit the lives of Adelaide’s most vulnerable children.
SunEnergy has had prior involvement with Puddle Jumpers. We are a family owned business and we too believe that All Kids Matter! To help these awesome people keep providing fun experiences to deserving kids SunEnergy proudly donated a 3.24kW Solar System to help keep their energy bills down.
We are proud to be behind Lee in his amazing effort to help provide vulnerable children with great childhood experiences through Puddle Jumpers!
Want to help out Lee? It will take $850 to get him to the edge of the building, however he has announced that if $2000 is raised he will do it in a Spiderman Costume!
