The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is the lead combat agency for bush fires in NSW. For over 100 years we have been a significant part of the history and landscape of NSW. Working closely with other agencies we respond to a range of emergencies including structure fires, motor vehicle accidents and storms that occur within rural fire districts.
The NSW RFS is widely acknowledged as the largest volunteer fire service in the world. Members of the NSW RFS are trained to very high levels of competence to ensure they know what to do in an emergency.
The Service aims to reduce the likelihood and consequence of fires occurring. This involves comprehensive risk management programs to reduce bush fire hazards, reduce fire ignitions and the development of regulations for bush fire prone areas.
'Walk For Phil' is a 23km walk, inspired by one, carried out by so many more. This year, Walk For Phil will take place on Friday 20th April, 2018.
Walking 23kms from Moonee Valley Racecourse to Caulfield Racecourse, via Flemington Racecourse, the walk encourages the generosity of the nation’s third biggest industry; to reach beyond it’s own participants, fans and supporters to embrace the general community to aid two of Phil Sly’s favourite charities - Pinchapoo and Very Special Kids.
Phil Sly was a larger than life character, thoroughly built around his passion for all of racing, from the punt, to ownership to camaraderie, but a man who valued life and giving to others.
Phil lost a staunch and rallying fight against “The Grub” of cancer in 2016 but not before inspiring others who were in sufferance along with many more who could make a difference and rally behind him and the cause.
And that is the idea behind 'Walk For Phil', something that he passionately drove before his passing, with a view to help his dear to heart life-changing charities, Pinchapoo and Very Special Kids.
This walk is to honour not just his life - one fully spent - but to work towards providing life-changing differences for others.
Registration is $65 including a Walk For Phil shirt, breakfast, BBQ lunch, and post-walk gala event with drinks, masseurs and more; the Walk starts at 8am sharp (registration from 7am) and concludes at 3pm.
The event is being run under the Pinchapoo ABN with all funds split evenly between Pinchapoo (ABN 21 603 724 018) and Very Special Kids (ABN 86 109 832 091).

Mandurah Wildlife Rescue is a registered environmental charity which rehabilitates injured and orphaned wildlife back to the bush. Our more than 150 volunteers (we don't have paid staff) also undertake school and community education on wildlife protection and conservation.
After 11 years of operations in 2019, we will build an onsite regional education centre and commence certified training for wildlife carers and eco tourism events. This new education centre will be separate from the rehabilitation centre and eventually will be able to financially support the important wildlife rehabilitation work we do. We are entirely dependent on grants and the generosity of public donations. We are therefore seeking donations and sponsorships from wildlife advocates to help us to realise our dream to become a regional environmental education centre to train the next generation of wildlife carers and protectors.
All money donated to Mandurah Wildlife Rescue goes to the care, housing and vet costs of injured wildlife and supports the infrastructure for their enclosures, education centre and resources. We have no paid staff and do not employ marketing companies. Thank you for your support.
