Abseil 33 floors or zipline 135m off a Sydney CBD skyscraper!

Are you ready to take the plunge for young people in crisis? Your bravery, enthusiasm and fundraising efforts will make a huge difference to over 200 young Australians who turn to Triple Care Farm each year to break the cycle of drug and alcohol addiction.

About Abseil for Youth

Abseil for Youth has been  Sir David Martin Foundation’s annual major fundraising event for the past 10 years, raising vital funds to support young people as they overcome drug and alcohol addiction.

Each year hundreds of participants face their fears to abseil or zipline down a Sydney SBD skyscraper  – teaming up with friends and colleagues for an adrenaline rush like no other. And best of all, it’s all in the name of supporting young people in crisis!

Sir David Martin Foundation is a major funder of Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm, a holistic residential treatment program in the NSW Southern Highlands. The best-practice program offers vulnerable young Australians  a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities.

“I have never felt more nervous in my life! But once I stepped over the edge of the 33 floor building to abseil, I felt empowered to complete the descent, knowing that I was helping a young person in crisis to get a second chance in life. It was an incredible feeling!” Past Abseiler


Abseil for Youth has raised more than $2.6 million for young people in crisis since 2010. This would not be possible without the support of our major event partners Investa Property Group and Urban Descent.
