Across the Bay Events is a professional event management company with a passion for making a difference in the community. Our events encourage participants to live a healthy lifestyle while giving back to the community, as individuals and as corporate organisations. We create unique events that are based on active challenge experiences with the goal of pushing limits, achieving positive outcomes and raising funds and awareness for worthy causes.

A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy contributes directly to the community and encourages involvement from employees, stakeholders and clients.
Keep it internal, letting employees compete against each other or sponsor your employees to participate in a community challenge and in their fund raising efforts.
We can help you deliver an event that supports a cause you’ve identified as being important to you and your clients.
We’ll work with you create and implement your active challenge experience providing the much-needed support you need for a start-up event.
