Transport company gets fit to help save little lives

At DSE Transport, we believe in the power of community and the impact we can make when we come together for a cause.

This year, we’re proud to announce our partnership with Red Nose, an organisation dedicated to saving little lives, supporting families and funding vital research.

To support this incredible cause, we’re participating in the City2Surf, the world’s largest fun run, with the aim of raising significant funds to help prevent the sudden and unexpected deaths of babies and children.

Raising money through Red Nose

Each year in Australia, over 3200 babies and children die suddenly and unexpectedly. That’s nine deaths every single day.

This devastating statistic is more than just a number. It represents the lives of children lost and the families left to grieve.

This cause is incredibly close to our hearts at DSE Transport, which is why we are determined to support Red Nose in their mission to work towards a future where no child dies suddenly or unexpectedly.

What is Red Nose?

Red Nose is an amazing charity that has been at the forefront of the fight against sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other sudden and unexpected infant deaths. 

Their work includes providing education and resources to parents and caregivers, supporting families who have experienced the loss of a child and funding critical research into the causes and prevention of these tragic deaths. 

We believe we’re contributing to a brighter, safer future for all children by raising funds for Red Nose.

Raising Money at City2Surf

City2Surf is a celebration of community spirit and the power of collective action.

As the world’s largest fun run, City2Surf spans a challenging 14km and has been a beloved annual tradition for 54 years.

This year, our team at DSE Transport is proud to join the race as “DSE Chafing the Dream,” featuring our dedicated runners Ryan, Paul, Josh, Dave, and Alisha.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 for Red Nose through our participation in City2Surf. With the first $10,000 coming from our back pockets. One of our values is “making a difference” and we mean it.

We are training hard and gearing up for the big day, knowing that every step we take and every dollar we raise brings us closer to saving lives and supporting families in need. 

The journey might be tough, but it’s nothing compared to the challenges faced by the families who have lost a child. We run in honor of those children and in the hope that our efforts can prevent future tragedies.

Last year, our team raised over $12,000 for another great cause.

We are determined to exceed that amount this year.

This incredible achievement was made possible by the generosity of our supporters, and we are confident that, with your help, we can reach our new goal.

How we’re preparing for City2Surf

Good health and fitness are crucial not only for participating in events like City2Surf but also for overall wellbeing.

As a transport company, promoting fitness among our team is a priority. We encourage our staff to stay active and healthy, knowing that a fit team is a happy and productive one.

Josh and Dave get in a few training k’s on the treadmill. 

To prepare for City2Surf, we have a personal trainer who visits our office regularly to work with our team. Our onsite gym is a fantastic resource that allows our staff to train together and stay motivated.

Setting fitness goals as a team has been incredibly effective. We’re working on these goals together and creating a supportive and motivating environment at the same time.

Through our collective efforts, our team has managed to lose a combined total of 66kg!

And remember – DSE Transport is a family business.

Our commitment to fitness and community extends beyond our staff.

Family members of our managing director are also participating in the run, making it a true family affair.

This helps reinforce the importance of health and fitness in all aspects of life.
