From time to time Integrate Communications gets to work with some of the most inspiring people on the planet. In June of 2013, Casey Tutungi an elite AFL/VFL footballer, had an accident on the field which rendered him a quadriplegic. IC worked with Casey’s family and the Casey Tutungi Foundation, a vehicle to manage all the fundraising for his rehabilitation. At the time Casey’s partner Bridget was six months pregnant. Rehabilitation and providing for his family were uppermost in his mind. The whole football community across the state but particularly Geelong and the Surf Coast shire rallied around Casey. The Melbourne media took this quietly determined and inspirational young man to heart. Leading journalist Jo Hall described Casey as one of the most humble and forgiving people she has met in her career. “… there is not one drop of self -pity there.” She said. This is true and his valiant and committed approach to his rehab has been an inspiration to others.
What we did:
Integrate communications got together with some of the best PR, advertising and marketing brains to draft out a 12 month strategy. All gave their time for this brainstorm session pro bono. What we wanted more than anything was keep the Foundation alive for at least 12 months to maximise fundraising for Casey and his family. Surf Coast Shire Councillor, Clive Goldsworthy was instrumental in setting up the mechanics of the Foundation with appropriate governance and tax status. He was (and still is) brilliant. Many others, too numerous to mention came on board. Most notable the Barwon South Football Club where Casey was a player coach. Simon Daly of Falls Festival fame also deserves a special mention for his heroic efforts in organising a free concert to fundraise for Casey. Some of Australia’s top artisits played at the “Concert for Casey” at Simmonds Stadium Geelong. This was a campaign focussed on managing the media, ensuring we did not play favourites and giving information to all at the same time. Treating everyone with respect and trying to ensure they all got something a little different was critical. Casey and Bridget are naturally reserved people and their main motivation in doing media was to thank everyone who had so generously supported them. The 12 month program extended into 24 months, with additional media coverage generated though specific events or activities.
“Sue has been an amazing help in the most difficult time of our lives. The difficult was made easy with Sue managing tv and radio interviews, newspaper and magazine articles. I don’t know how we would have coped without you. Thanks again Sue and look forward to staying in touch.” Casey and Bridget Tutungi “The dust has somewhat settled now since Casey’s football accident which left him a quadriplegic and all our lives have changed so much. We would like to personally thank you once again for all the wonderful work that you did in managing the media, from TV, radio and newspapers. It was just fantastic to know that you were there coordinating what was happening at that very emotional time for us. We are most grateful for your professional and caring approach to the situation and we would welcome the opportunity to highly recommend your services. we would be pleased to speak with anyone in regard to the services you offer.” Regards Chris and Carol Tutungi Lorne Bush House Cottages & Eco Retreats 1860 Deans Marsh Road Lorne
