SIP Week encourages everyone to drink all beverages through a straw, just like those with a spinal injury, to help raise funds to find the cure for paralysis. This year SIP Week ran from September 16th to September 22nd 2019 and a record amount of donations were raised; $123,000! Over 2,600 donations were made to the campaign and this helped us achieve the highest SIP Week results ever.
Our SIP Week ambassador’s, Matt and Kylie Kuhne, generously shared their story and raised awareness of the campaign. The Kuhne Family is one of thousands of families affected by a spinal cord injury after an accident riding a motorcycle left Matt Kuhne a quadriplegic. You can hear more of their story here;
Thank you to our incredible sponsors and prize donors for making this a record year; Sargood on Colloroy, Village Roadshow Theme Parks, Sea World, Top Golf, Australian Outback Spectacular, Terry White Chemmart, Nova Press and By Green.
