The 7-Storey Leap!

Last week Kyal and I leapt off a 7-storey building – and by ‘leapt’ I mean very slowly and reluctantly abseiled down under close supervision…

I (Kara) have discovered I’m getting scared of heights in my old age. Perhaps having Ziya has made me feel more vulnerable. Leading up to our ‘leap’ I hadn’t had a chance to think too much about the process, so it wasn’t until I was standing on the roof-top of Crowne Plaza Terrigal that all the fear crept in. For a split second, I actually thought I was going to cry! Or maybe that was just the wind in my eyes….

“Why would you leap off a 7-storey building?” I hear you asking… We’d been challenged by our community to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service by taking the Leaders Leap. Whether it’s a neonatal transfer or a trauma rescue, the team at the Rescue Helicopter Service have such an important role in our community. The reality is, you or I may need this service one day.  Our fundraising tally is open until 14th August, we’d love you to contribute here if you can.
