Miki Simankevicius is a 25-year-old filmmaker, photographer, metal musician, & vegan fitness enthusiast.
Adventurous by nature, Miki has a passion for any activity that pushes him beyond his comfort zone such as playing shows with his metal band Annihilist, competing on Australian Ninja Warrior TV Show or scaling great heights to capture the perfect photo.
On 17 and 18 April, Miki will be joined by 200 other big-hearted thrill seekers abseiling down an iconic Melbourne CBD building as part of Anglicare Victoria’s Altitude Shift 2020.
“I’m proud to be an Altitude Shift Ambassador to raise money for kids in foster care and support the great work Anglicare Victoria does for thousands of children and young people,” says Miki.
Anglicare Victoria supports around 1,300 children and young people each year. They provide foster and residential care, emergency relief, parenting and family services, financial and legal services.
“Abseiling 27 stories is a great way to parallel the fears many foster kids face each day and gives the general public an opportunity to break out of their comfort zone. It is going to be an awesome experience.”
You don’t need ninja warrior fitness level or extreme sports experience to participate in Altitude Shift but you must be over 16 years and have a minimum fundraising target of $850. Full abseiling and safety training plus equipment will be provided.
