Upcoming Great Endeavour Rally - travelling through North and Central Queensland - looking for recruits

The Great Endeavour Rally is coming to North Queensland to celebrate the 30th year of this iconic charity event

It will be held from 9th – 17th June, when the weather is perfect.

The Great Endeavour Rally raises dust and dollars for people with a disability and now is the perfect time to get involved as the event works its way from Yeppoon up to Cooktown before heading back to Hervey Bay through some amazing outback scenery.

It’s an eight-day event that is open to everyone, and is the perfect opportunity to build some great new friendships, see some amazing destinations that you’d have never otherwise have known about and raise some funds for charity.

All you need is a car, a mate to be your navigator and the ability to raise some funds.

Background:

The Great Endeavour Rally is Endeavour Foundation’s key annual fundraising event and in 2017 will celebrate its 30th year, having raised more than $10 Million for people with a disability in this time.

Each year the Rally travels to new destinations, and in 2017 the Rally will be heading your way! It will be an eight-day adventure starting in Yeppoon on the 9th June and travelling north to Cooktown before we turn around and finish in Hervey Bay on June 17.

It’s an event that attracts people from all over the country (and we now have teams from Singapore) with people of all ages and demographics coming together to raise dust and dollars for a great cause.

The organisers are looking for volunteers to get involved or (even better) if people decide to join the fun and put a team into the event. Please note the Great Endeavour Rally is a non-speed event, it’s all about adventure and fun. People get to see places they’ve never even heard of while making lifelong friends and raising funds for a great cause.

There are two driving options for people, depending on their vehicle and how much of a challenge they are looking for. There is the traditional rally course, which is almost exclusively off-road driving and has some good, challenging tracks covering mud, sand, water crossings and off-road hill climbs/descents. The other option is referred to as a Road Trip and it starts and finishes at the same spot each day, but takes on a much gentler terrain and will feature a mixture of sealed roads and occasional well-formed gravel tracks. It’s important to note that neither are speed events, all road rules are strictly enforced, this is about taking your vehicles to places that you wouldn’t otherwise.
