The Goldie’s 92.5 Triple M stands up against domestic violence

Now in its sixth year, The Goldie’s 92.5 Triple M is standing up once again to show support and raise awareness against Domestic Violence.
The annual stand-up paddleboard event would usually gather the entire Gold Coast community to the waters of the local Currumbin Boatshed, where all would stand on boards to pledge their oath to stop Domestic Violence.
Unable to gather the entire Gold Coast community in person this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt took on the mammoth task to stand up on a paddleboard for a total of 12 hours. 
On the airwaves yesterday from 5.30 am to 6 pm, Spida was joined by breakfast co-hosts Bridget ‘Bridge’ Brousard and Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan and throughout the day, Triple M announcers Jonelle ‘Nelly’ McKenzie, Al Dobie and Luke Bradnam joined the broadcast to encourage and support from the shoreline along with locals.
Extremely close to her heart, the initiative was first established in 2015 by Bridge Brousard who said,  “It’s our sixth annual Stand Up Against Domestic Violence day and it was done a little differently this year. We couldn’t have the crowds down but Spida put his body on the line from 6 am to 6 pm, standing on a paddleboard to raise awareness for this year’s campaign.
“Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 lockdowns, the cases of domestic violence have dramatically increased, so our awareness campaign is incredibly important. The pandemic was definitely not going to stop us from coming down to the boatshed, pledging our oath and standing up as a community against Domestic Violence.”
After 12 hours on a stand-up paddleboard and severely swollen feet, Spida said: “Domestic Violence is a very hard topic to talk openly about, not just for women but men too. It was amazing to see the support from locals and the Triple M family today.
“To do my part and carry on this awareness day for the sufferers and survivors, it’s the least I can contribute to highlight the increasing numbers of those affected by Domestic Violence.”
