SIX PEAKS IN ONE DAY
THE FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE.
On Sunday the 7th of May over 50 adventurous mountain climbers from several teams raised $67,059 for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to help purchase life-saving paediatric medical equipment for our local and regional Queensland hospitals. With this incredible result the inaugural fundraising event ‘6 Peaks in 1 Day’ hosted by local Real Estate Agency Reed & Co. Estate Agents was a resounding success!
For Reed & Co. Estate Agents the commitment to the community is the core driver of everything they do. Since opening the office in 2018, the Reed & Co. team in collaboration with the Loyal Foundation, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, and the Noosa community, together have raised over $759,000.
“The idea was born only six weeks before the event as a challenge between a few guys in the office. It grew quickly into a much bigger idea, turning from a challenging day out to a full-blown fundraising event. Honestly, I pinch myself constantly at Reed & Co., to have such a motivated inspiring team of people that are so keen to make an impact it’s a dream come true for me, I couldn’t be more proud of them and what they have been able to achieve” – Adrian Reed Director & Founder.
The 6 Peaks event was an epic challenge that was no doubt as tough as it was fun. Starting at the Reed & Co. office in Noosaville at 4:30am in the morning, two buses kindly donated by the Good Shepherd Lutheran College took the eager climbers to Wild Horse Mountain in the Beerburrum State Forest for the first climb of the day just in time for a beautiful Sunrise over the Glasshouse Mountains.
Back in the bus on the way to the next stop Mount Beerburrum, a steep climb up to the peak overlooking the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Mount Ngungun was the last peak to be mastered before leaving the Glasshouse Mountains northbound towards Mount Ninderry. After a beautiful climb up Mount Coolum with great views and an even better team spirit, the last challenge awaited: Mount Cooroora! With 439m the highest peak of the day. Last peak but also the chance to become King and Queen of the mountain for the competitors. James Doring finished the climb in remarkable 31 minutes winning the welldeserved title! Followed closely by Queen of the mountain, Jessica Peisley.
The day ended at the gin distillery Pomona Distilling Co. with some well-deserved celebratory drinks. A special thank you to the sponsors of the event, Satori Advisory, VitHit Vitamin Water, Bounce Foods and Judo Bank
