The Rock-itt : September 2010
Two brothers, over 3,000 kilometres and a $1,000 car. What could possibly go wrong? In May next year, my brother (Tim) and I (Chris), will be partaking in a Car Rally for The Cancer Council of NSW. The object is to raise money for cancer research, treatment and patient support by driving a vehicle costing less than $1,000 and auctioning it at the end. The Rally begins in Brisbane, through the Queensland outback, North to the Table and Savannah Lands, through escarpment country, million acre cattle stations, river crossings, Aboriginal settlements, across to Katherine Gorge and onto Darwin via Kakadu. We will travel approximately 3400km not just for the journey but for the message we'll be sending - It doesn't take a superhero to make a difference, it takes ordinary people. My brother and I? Well we're just ordinary people getting off the couch trying to make a difference. Like most brothers we can't stand each other half the time, other times we're the best of mates. This journey won't only be a test of our willpower in a cramped little sh*tbox, but a test of our ability to tolerate each other! We are seeking local businesses to sponsor us. Through sponsorship, a business may have branding space on our car - from a small logo at less than 20cm diameter, a large logo or could brand our entire car. The rally receives a lot of media coverage and interest via Triple J radio, Icon International and for the first time next year, Top Gear Australia magazine, not to mention social networks so there are some great ways in which we can work with local businesses to gain targeted marketing initiatives for your company. Please contact Chris on 0403 767 794 for full details. All donations big or small are accepted. Every cent helps towards our minimum goal of $4,000 for The Cancer Council. Tax deductable donations of $2 or more can be made through our Everyday Hero web page: www.everydayhero.com.au/the_h endos We will keep you updated of our progress, including the purchase of our vehicle and later, the wrap-up of the Rally in later editions of The Rock-Itt magazine. Thank you for your support!
