SUNDAY 11th March- Date change
Bravery Box is hosting the 2018 swimming carnival meet for Little Big Swim and All About Aquatics, Everton Park - (guest swimmers also welcome) at Everton Park State School pool.
Standing up on the dive block takes a whole lot of BRAVE and we want to celebrate our swimmer's hard work this season.
Carnival is the key word here.
Games, Sausage Sizzles, Bake Sales, Dive workshops, Underwater Photography,
Races for Aged 4 to Squad level, Our World Famous Pool Pony Race (for parents and coaches).
For the entertainment of all races between our coaches from AAA and LBSS and parents.
All proceeds from the day go towards the work of the BRAVERY BOX for kids with cancer. Our project collects donations from the public of toys, gifts and other items to reward and incentivise the bravery of the children and teens undergoing treatment for cancer at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. The carnival will also be a drop off point for donations if you are all the colours of awesome and would like to make a donation.

The event will also be a drop off point for toys, games, books and other rewards for the Bravery Box to distribute to kids with cancer (please see below or the link above for the work we do). Please note: because so many of the children with cancer have compromised immunity we can only accept new donations, we ever so politely decline second hand.
A little something about the Bravery Box - Cancer treatment is often painful and confronting - when a child with cancer at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital braves up for a procedure they dip into the Bravery Box as a reward; rewards in the form of toys, games, iTunes vouchers and other 'well dones' donated by the public.
The Swimming Carnival will be a drop off point for donations and all proceeds from the carnival will be donated to The Bravery Box. You could make a donation yourself or be all the colours of awesome and get your friends and family to contribute as well bringing a stash of rewards for kids going toe to toe with painful procedures.
Great donations are toys, unique water bottles, young adult fiction, books, colouring in books, craft sets, lego, play doh, iTunes vouchers (our teens LOVE these), anything smiggle or spencil, nail polish, lip gloss. Think of what your child would like to be distracted during a long wait or a painful procedure and you'll be bang on.
