Cross River Rail Delivers A Win For The Sudsy Challenge

02 Sep 2021

The Sudsy Challenge is on track for another successful year as Cross River Rail Delivery Authority gets onboard, donning the orange shirts to make a statement.

Businesses, organisations and community groups play a huge role in the success of The Sudsy Challenge each year, raising funds, starting conversations among colleagues and positively connecting more friends to Orange Sky.

Graeme Newton is the CEO of Cross River Rail Delivery Authority (CRRDA) and a proud supporter of Orange Sky.

“I have gotten to know Orange Sky and the important work they do over the years,” Graeme says.

“I want to give back and support an organisation that really delivers on its commitments, while also connecting with workmates in a fun and inclusive challenge.”

CRRDA participated in The Sudsy Challenge in 2020, becoming one of the top fundraising teams. Graeme says he sees first-hand the important work Orange Sky does and the difference it makes for friends.

“I personally haven’t been impacted directly by homelessness, but I have known Mike Duggan (Orange Sky Chief Operations Officer) for several years and know from his work just how much impact Orange Sky can have on people’s lives.” 

Graeme and his team have so far raised nearly $5000 for The Sudsy Challenge, putting them in an easy third place on the corporate teams’ leaderboard.

“We want to contribute to a cause, which benefits the lives of Australia’s most vulnerable people,” he says.

“With close to $5000 raised by the CRRDA team already, everything beyond this point is a great achievement. Because of the dedicated and compassionate employees of the CRRDA, we’re definitely winning the inaugural Sudsy Corporate Cup.”

Businesses thinking of getting involved in The Sudsy Challenge can take heed of Graeme’s encouraging advice:

“Stop thinking and start.”
