WAVERLEY ACTION FOR YOUTH SERVICES
The Bondi Splash n’ Dash organisers are committed to give back to a very special part of the Bondi community – WAYS (Waverley Action Youth Services). The brainchild of local lifeguard and Bondi Rescue star, Andrew Reid (or ‘Reidy’ as he’s affectionately known) – the event raises much needed funds to support this invaluable facility that is so important to the Eastern Suburbs.
Growing up in Bondi as an overweight teenager, battling with bullies and depression, sometimes life was tough. Reidy’s escape was a little piece of paradise in Waroia Ave called WAYS. ‘The Youthie’ offers local kids who need help for whatever the reason may be, a place to go when there isn’t anywhere else. This event is as much about raising money for the Centre as it is about getting the community moving. Each year we set a fundraising target and then try and smash it.
MONEY RAISED SO FAR:
2014 - $5000
2015 - $8000
2016 - $7400
2017 - $8500
