SURF LIFESAVERS ARE ICONIC AUSTRALIANS.
You see their reassuring presence on the beach when you go for a swim. You admire their skill and athleticism as they race through the waves. But the red and yellow army aren’t just here for fun. They’re here for YOU.
Last year alone Queensland’s volunteer surf lifesavers directly saved the lives of 3,894 beachgoers through in-water rescues and treated 65,133 injured people through first aid treatments. All of this was provided at no cost to Queensland beachgoers!
Every year, Australian’s dig deep to help keep our vital life saving services and volunteers on the beach, doing the job they love. Every dollar raised through SOS Week helps surf life saving clubs across Queensland continue to raise the red and yellow flags and ensure you stay safe at the beach.
And YOU can help
