It seems all families are "touched" by Cancer. No one goes unscathed these days - but to help fight and beat this wicked disease, we all need to be AWARE of symptoms, ACT upon these symptoms, and go to the Doctor but most importantly, do as much as possible to PREVENT it happening. We need to Support RESEARCH into this disease for without that... nothing changes or progresses, and we need to make use of Testing etc made available to us, to help with EARLY DETECTION . In doing this Rally and being apart of its process of preparation and participation of how it unfolds, we believe we are and can make more and more people AWARE and EDUCATED about all of the above facts. (It's so important to enlighten those folk in country towns as well as those in the city). This is our reason for wanting to be involved in this Life Giving Venture.
Teams will drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in this unique 5 day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.
The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.
Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally."
