We’re a competitive bunch – all for a good cause of course.
Each year the wonderful team at Savvy Fitness plays host to bring the Wollongong community together to promote physical activity and healthy hearts in supportive environments all while raising funds for a local charity in the area – welcome to Savvy Survivor.
Savvy Survivor is a 7 day charity event where the emphasis is teamwork, fun and participation. Four teams made up of Savvy members, associate businesses, and the wider community duke it out to achieve points through a series of activities and challenges. Survivor is designed to physically and mentally test participants while encouraging teamwork and raise funds for local charity.

Ericom’s very own Tate English, a Green Tribe Chief, pulled off an incredible effort performing six laps of the sublime point circuit, a massive 15klm loop up and down a mountain in the rain. Tate is known to us for always bringing his A-game but we couldn’t go past without acknowledging his determination and amazing results – great work Tate! Together the Ericom team raised $2,500 to go towards helping make our community happier, healthier and more active. Savvy Survivor 2020 raised a total of $39,839.00.
