Deb and Leasa and an old camper are aiming to participate in the inaugural Jalopy Derby 2020
The Derby commences in Sydney and travels through outback NSW and Queensland passing through many towns and using dirt roads, finishing in Airlie Beach.
The Derby will not only raise funds for Rural Aid, but will also bring fun, colour and support to our remote farming communities.
During the Derby we will be participating in a Rural Aid project.
We have paid our enter fee
We have our Jalopy!
But to get to the start line we must raise a minimum of $5000 for Rural Aid
The Jalopy Derby is a 7 night, 8 day car rally across rural outback Australia, primarily on unsealed roads, providing participants with an opportunity to experience this amazing country, build life long friendships, foster comradeship and an ethos of helping others and simply celebrating life itself.
However, we’re a rally with a real difference . . . We won’t be rushing from one overnight stop to another, trying to cover as many kilometres as possible and missing the unique environment we’re driving through. On the contrary, our derby goes out of its way to give you fascinating insights into the regions and the challenges they face.
From the ‘Buy a Bale campaign’, where Australians have generously donated to enable the distribution of fodder, food hampers and more, to the programs designed to help farmers rebuild and repair vital infrastructure, Rural Aid aims to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia.
Our mission is to raise as much money as possible for the drought affected rural communities across Australia, supported by Rural Aid.
