ABOUT OUR CAUSE
Welcome to Pull 4 Purpose, founded by Troy Conley-Magnusson in 2020 we are a group of Strongmen who are dedicated to performing truly world class feats of strength to help raise money for Charities and those who need it most.
Throughout 2020 and 2021 Troy spearheaded the now infamous #carpullforkids campaign where he completed over 40 different Feats of Strength including setting 4 new World Records and he even pulled a 220 Tonne Tallship across Sydney’s Circular Quay- but the best part- he successfully raised over $66,000 for Hyundai Help for Kids to support 3 of their amazing partners in Little Wings, Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia.
As we head into 2022 Troy and his team are more determined to keep the good work going strong but this time he’s not alone.
Teaming up with one of his best mate’s Damian Jones the duo are planning to take on some of the biggest challenges ever seen in Australia as they look to set some new World Records with some truly spectacular tandem pulls and head to head races!
What remains key though is they continue the fundraising and in 2022 this will be dedicated to Little Wings, a non for profit organisation based in Bankstown, Sydney.
Little Wings supplies critical support and transport for families in regional parts of NSW whose children are seriously ill or injured and need to either receive treatment at the Children’s Hospital Westmead or John Hunter in Newcastle.
These conditions can vary in severity and can be anything from broken bones, cancer, leukemia, cystic fibrosis and other complications. Little Wings receives $0 from the Government and are solely funded by donations from both the Public and Corporate sector but as you can imagine throughout the pandemic this has meant a massive pause from some usual donors as they just don’t physically have the money to help and all at a time when they’ve been needed more than ever.
So our mission this year- simple, raise enough money for Little Wings that they can get another vehicle added to their fleet, with just 1 more vehicle they can look to help even more families and thanks to our good mates at Hyundai we’ve got a great deal on a brand new set of wheels – but we need your help to get it on the road.
Every donation over $2 is 100% tax deductable so seeming as the Governments are generally pretty useless with our taxes why not give them a little less to waste while giving Little Wings a little more where eery single $ makes a genuine difference.
