CEO Sleepout Raises more than $550,000.00 in Queensland
Aspire MD Luke Forman prepares for long night ahead
From a personal perspective, it was an eye opening experience. Even though I was well prepared for a cold winter's night (with three layers of clothing and a sleeping bag), I was not prepared for how uncomfortable it would be sleeping on a piece of cardboard on the concrete floor! Every time I needed to change position of my sleep, it became a slow process of getting back to sleep due to the hard floor beneath me.
The result of this incredibly broken sleep was to "wake up tired" and it was a struggle to be effective the following day. I can see how a viscous cycle might develop for those not fortunate enough to have a bed to sleep in each night.
A huge thanks goes to all those people who donated in support of my efforts, $940 was raised and this is very much appreciated.
