Avalon Beach RSL Club’s Pikachu Triumph
Angus Rimmer, General Manager of Avalon Beach RSL Club has completed the "Dare The Boss" challenge set for him by his staff members. The Dare the Boss Challenge is a fundraising idea for the Children's Cancer Institute where a boss can be challenged to do something they dislike, fear, has an element of 'squirm' or they would avoid if possible.
Challenges such as spider encounters, ten plates of cold broccoli for ten days in a row, listening to a recording of Frozen's 'Let it Go' sung/bellowed by your children for a month, or wearing a costume of one of their favourite, not yours, characters, are all up for grabs.
After two hours and 13 073 steps, Angus, or Pikachu as he preferred to be known when on this run, but not ever after, .... and that's ever ever ever, completed the challenge set him early Saturday afternoon, October 22nd.
Along the way his support team captured many a fine moment, including the youngsters and their parents who wanted a photo with the bright yellow electric mouse, the gruelling climb up Newport hill and even a small rest on a park bench at Bilgola Beach.
Katie Lewis, Assistant General Manager at the club, and Avalon Beach RSL Sub-Branch member Lynn Murphy accompanied the Pikachu Angus all along the route – at one stage they can be seen pushing him up those rather challenging steps from Bilgola.
