Why fundraise?

There are a number of reasons why our supporters fundraise for Re-engage.

Our corporate supporters find it a fun and engaging way to involve their employees for the benefit of the community and staff wellbeing.

Some of our supporters raise money in memory of their loved ones who held Re-engage close to their hearts or to honour the memories of relatives they have lost.
