47Up - Let's Change47 together
47 is the average life expectancy of people who are homeless. Hundreds of people lose their life each year on the streets of Australia. This is a National emergency and needs to change.
As a person who turned 47 a few years ago (I'm now 54), I have pledged to Change 47 by raising funds to support six new Beddown venues across Queensland. Beddown isn't just a safe place to sleep, it's a health and social response giving people access to a range of services that are life changing. I'll be supporting this 'fun'raiser for Beddown by swimming 470 laps of a 25 metre pool over the next 4 weeks.
So, please help me stay motivated to complete the 470 laps and let's change lives and save lives together, by making a donation of $47. It's tax deductible, so get in before 30 June.

Update - 14/6/23Wednesday 14th Jun Hey, just finished my first 60 laps yesterday and thanks to my first sponsor; covering the first 48 laps @ $1/lap. I hope to raise a minimum of $1/lap = $470 for the Change47 campaign. It would be great if we can raise more? The link is below & a quick update below after my swim. Thanks for supporting Beddown, Change47 and most importantly people struggling through another winter with no home. Page 👇
