Drop Your Boss SkyJump 2016

$48,257 raised

Drop Your Boss is a unique FUNdraiser which challenges our Corporate Partners to nominate their Boss to 'drop' off the top of a building.


In 2013 Drop Your Boss had its inaugural event in Marlborough when it was decided the organisation needed a unique and quirky fundraiser which would challenge the business community in a way that our programme kids are challenged daily.

The life experiences our youth face regularly are fraught with difficulties so in order to replicate that feeling of going out of their comfort zone, Drop Your Boss evolved. For a corporate partner 'Boss', to experience that moment as they are ‘dropped’ will help them better understand what our young people feel.

Our aim is to have our young people transition through our school based programmes from Kiwi Can, Stars and Career Navigator ages 5 – 18 as a transformational journey that sets them up with a strong platform for adult life and a career.

A key part in the success of our programmes is based on challenging participants to change their perceptions of what they think they can achieve - which makes this unique and novel fundraising event a great fit.

Drop Your Boss is a part of a wider Graeme Dingle Foundation awareness campaign throughout the country enabling Boss's to actively support the Graeme Dingle Foundation transform young lives forever.
