Each year the Nic MacBean Cup is held to raise money for beyondblue in memory of Nic MacBean, who sadly passed away in 2015 after a decade long battle with depression. In 2017 the Nic MacBean Cup will be held at Brisbane Boys' College on Friday the 24th of November from 1pm.
You can read see more about Nic and his battle via a fantastic video made by the Huffington Post following last years match here http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/chris-paine/the-nic-macbean-cup-celebrating-the-legacy-of-a-man-who-fought_a_21625409/
In addition to the cricket match, this year some brave Deloitte Brisbane employees have decided to take up another challenge. On the 1st of December from 6.00am at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, we will be running up and down the main stairs based on the total amount of money raised. Each lap (up and down the stairs) costs $5 and as a team we will complete the required level of laps as specified by the level of donations that we receive.
We want to make a difference and we are inspired by the work of beyondblue and wanted to support them by raising money for a charity that was very close to Nic's heart.
Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about beyondblue, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
