It’s that time of year where we’ll again wake up at a ridiculous hour (it’s still cold outside), slink into lycra and lace up our sneakers and participate in the Bridge to Brisbane (B2B). Almost all Gouldson staff will attempt to walk, run, (or crawl) the 10km.
But we don’t just roll up at the start line for Instagram selfies – we’re loyal B2Bers because it’s our chance to support a charity close to our hearts. This year will be our fourth year pounding Brisbane’s roads in support of the RBWH Foundation’s Burnslife program.
Burnslife assists burns patients and their families on their road to recovery and rehabilitation through peer support, education and care facilities. Formed in 2015, Burnslife works to facilitate a positive transition from hospital to home, helping patients adjust to life with burns.
We were introduced to Burnslife after a past client of ours suffered burns in a terrible accident, and turned that experience into an opportunity to help others.
The B2B is Burnslife’s major annual fundraiser, so the event is the biggest focus for them (and us) to raise much needed money for the burns ward and the work that Burnslife do.
Help us hit our fundraising goal
Each year we try to lift the bar a notch or two to help raise vital funds for this much needed and valued program. Want to help us?
