All funds raised are donated to charities including the Children's Hospital Foundation Burns Unit, Mates4Mates and for the very first time, raises money for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.

A newly appointed community ambassador for Mates4Mates Mr Bygrave said through his work he could meet inspiring individuals who changed people's lives for the better.

"There's not many jobs in the world where it doesn't feel like work if you love what you do," he said.
