This year our CFO Craig is heading off to drive a car worth less than $1,000 from Melbourne to Townsville through the outback, that’s over 7,545 km’s. We thought he was crazy too, however it is all to raise money for the Cancer Council. This charity is vital to funding cancer research projects. Here is a snippet from their website about how vital this rally is –
“The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is the pinnacle for vital funding for groundbreaking cancer research projects, but their budget only goes so far. The cancer researchers who miss out get another chance at funding via Cancer Council grants. The impact of these projects has been felt right across Australia with many of the grants made possible by Box Rallies funding.
For the first time, Box Rallies funds the next highest ranked grants after the NHMRC. This means that Box Rallies will fund some of the most exciting cancer research projects across the country – with the highest potential to significantly impact those affected by cancer.”
We would like to thank everyone who generously donated to this worthy cause, Craig and his rally team have raised just over $9,000 for this very worthy cause. Stay tuned this will be one Epic Adventure.
There are certain things that become synonymous with an area. For Penrith, at the foot of the Blue Mountains, it must be JK Williams. With the dark blue background and bright yellow lettering their trademark is distinctive and solid. I grew up knowing the name and recognising those trucks. My father, Ivan Casson, has always said, “If you want it done right, get JK Williams”.
