Take the plunge
To raise awareness of the appalling carnage on roads and raise funds for Brake's campaigns and support services for road crash victims, why not take the plunge for Brake! It's a Kiwi tradition to jump off high things, so give it a go in aid of a great cause! Why not...
Abseil or Zip Slide! What a fantastic adrenalin rush for a great cause.
Bungee! Take part in the greatest Kiwi tradition of all.
Skydive! The ultimate thrill! Opportunity to even video yourself doing your big leap for safety.
Base jump by wire! Wicked way to show you care about road safety.
Go rafting those rapids! Get wet and wild away from roads.
Thought about it and ready to plunge? Here's how in six easy steps!
1. Use the internet or your local paper to find out what is on offer near you and decide what you want to do! Make sure you choose a responsible, established operator with safety standards and insurance. (Brake accepts no liability for the safety of any activity you choose to do.) You might also want to look out on voucher sites for special offers companies are running.
2. Call them up, fix a date, and tell them you are doing the event in aid of Brake. Ask if they can offer you a special rate, given you are doing it for a great cause - many companies do, so it's worth asking!
3. Set yourself a target for how much you intend to raise through sponsorship. Decide whether you want to pay for your activity yourself, so that all monies raised in sponsorship go straight to Brake, or whether you want to raise enough to cover the costs of your activity as well as for a donation to Brake. If you choose the second option, aim to raise a minimum of twice as much as the event costs, so Brake still gets significant funds and people aren't just paying for you to have fun!
5. Raise funds from family and friends! A great way to save time and hassle later is to collect donations as you go, rather than after your event, so attach an envelope to your sponsorship form so you can put the money straight in.
