Boardies Day 2013: Melbourne - Raising vital funds for Surf Life Saving
Boardies Day is an annual fundraising event to raise vital funds for lifesaving services throughout Australia. It’s a day to celebrate summer, our beaches, our lifestyle and our volunteer lifesavers that give up their time to protect us all at the beach.
Swap your usual work or school attire, wear your board shorts and raise funds for Surf Life Saving. It’s open to all ages and a great way to put the FUN back into FUNDRAISING.
The concept of Boardies Day is simple. You can donate your funds directly to your favourite Surf Life Saving Club or allocate it to priority lifesaving services in your state.
Bosses in Boardies is the same concept with a twist! Get your work colleagues and boss involved! Not only will you get to wear board shorts on Boardies Day, but also if you reach your set target, your Boss has to wear their Boardies! You set your fundraising target and do the deal with your boss! Why not make a day of it – have a beach themed party at lunch or after work.
Start your fundraising now – then you can kick back and enjoy the festivities on Boardies Day (wearing your fabulous board shorts of course).
WHEN – FRIDAY February 22, 2013 but you can start your fundraising now!

About Surf Life Saving:
Surf Life Saving has a proud tradition of saving lives for over 100 years. Since 1907, surf lifesavers have volunteered their time and effort to provide a dedicated lifesaving service around the country.
Surf lifesavers make a BIG impact on Australian beaches every year – they give up their time to provide a safe environment for Australians to enjoy beaches and waterways around the country. Each year, our volunteer lifesavers provide more than one million hours of patrol time and last season alone, performed more than 12,000 rescues and nearly 300,000 preventative actions.
That’s a lot of people who get to go home safe and sound after a trip to the beach!
