Ryan Feely and Jordan Saville of SBS and subsidiary FANZ were thrilled to get behind the Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland Drop for Youth 2021, taking up the bungy jumping challenge to raise funds for this great cause.
Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland is a local community group that works alongside Southern children and young people to help them develop life skills and resilience.
These skills are developed through targeted school-based youth programmes, including Kiwi Can, Career Navigator and Stars that help participants learn to work together, understand different perspectives, successfully work together with others, and how to bounce back from setbacks.
To support these initiatives, the Graeme Dingle Foundation in partnership with AJ Hackett Bungy have organised the 2021 Southern Drop for Youth with the goal of raising at least $780 for every volunteer taking part.
As a proud supporter of our local communities, SBS was happy to get behind the event, with team members Ryan and Jordan volunteering to take the Drop for Youth challenge.
Together they raised an incredible combined $5,340, contributing to an overall total of more than $37,900 raised by jumpers from across Southland.
All funds raised from the Drop for Youth will go towards helping the Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland with running their youth-based programmes and supporting our local young people.
