Rally to start in Silver City
Wednesday, 17th September, 2014
Broken Hill will be the starting point for this year's Camp Quality outback fundraising car rally to help support children with cancer.
Some 71 cars will take part in the "esCarpade" which starts October 18 and will see entrants travel over 3,500km through NSW, SA and VIC.
Along the way they'll pull into towns including Port Augusta, Clare, Berri, Wentworth and Hay in a fanfare of sirens, horns, water cannons, lights and colour.
During their stay entrants will visit local schools with the Camp Quality puppets to help educate children about caring for kids with cancer.
Cars must be at least 20 years old to enter and teams spend the year dressing the car up, making it roadworthy and encouraging people to sponsor them for their week-long adventure.
The aim is to raise $1.2 million which will be enough to support a further 250 families who have a child living with cancer for the next year, through their resilience-building programs.
"Putting cars that are at least 20 years old through the challenge of the off-road adventures of the outback is all part of the excitement that this event generates," event manager Bianca Elhage said.
The rally finishes at Albury on October 25.
