The Big Day off is back in 2016! What would you do with an extra day of paid vacation…?
After a successful pilot run last year, we are very happy to announce that the Big Day Off will be taking place again in 2016. With a dedicated management and marketing team in place and some major partnerships under negotiation, the 2016 round looks set to be a big one, and SpinalCure is honoured to be a standing beneficiary of the event.
Inspired by James McQuillan, a talented sportsman who became a quadriplegic after an Aussie Rules Football injury in Albury in 2014, the Big Day Off is the brain child of a group of seven Albury individuals, who knew the accident was bigger than the football club, and wanted to make a difference for all Australians living with a spinal cord injury.
The Big Day Off (BDO) is a team effort between businesses and employees to raise money and awareness for those impacted by spinal cord injury. Businesses sign up online, and staff can then buy as many $5 tickets as they like to go into the draw to win a paid day off work. It’s a simple, easy and fun way for us all to support a great cause and score a day off at the same time.
Do you own a business or know someone who should sign their business up to the Big Day Off? Head over to www.bigdayoff.org to find out more information. Entries open March 10 and tickets can be purchased up until June 30 when the draw will take place. Winners will be announced July 1.
All proceeds from the BDO are donated to Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, SpinalCure Australia, and a number of local and regional spinal charities in the Albury Wodonga region.The Big Day Off
