It’s not that we’re unhappy with our CEO Phil Johnson. No, quite the opposite. He’s made the decision to cascade down the side of Christchurch’s Les Mills building, and as stalwart supporters of his efforts, we want to make that descent all that it can be.
P.S. – It’s for charity
There’s an entirely reasonable explanation for why Phil has chosen to descend rapidly from Les Mills. It’s part of the Drop Your Boss 2016 Canterbury FUNdraiser on 7 October (and with that extra emphasis on “fun”, you know it must be good).
Drop Your Boss raises money for the Graeme Dingle Foundation, which provides life changing opportunities to young people in communities with high levels of social deprivation.
Phil will be “dropped”* from this building…
* Well, he’ll abseil from the building. It seemed unfair to make him do it without a rope.
… in return for pledges for the Graeme Dingle Foundation, helping Canterbury youth
Your donation will go towards delivering Graeme Dingle Foundation learning and mentoring programmes in Canterbury. The programmes help young people aged 5 – 18 develop life skills and confidence and empower them to find purpose and direction. The programmes:
- improve attitudes and behaviour
- improve academic results
- help young people set and achieve their goals
- boost self-confidence
- reduce truancy rates and at-risk behaviours such as substance abuse
- help young people feel more positive about the future.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to support Canterbury youth and to reassure Phil he hasn’t made a terrible mistake
Get behind this great cause. You’ll help young people in Canterbury become all they can be, you’ll make Phil leap with greater enthusiasm and you’ll get all sorts of warm fuzzies.
