You’ve created something really special and we feel incredibly proud to be a part of it. There’s obviously the astonishing level of funds that are raised which we passionately support but it’s also great to see the impact on the remote communities – all the revenue that’s injected and the weird and wonderful spectacle we bring as we roll in each night. I’m sure the experience provides a talking point for the locals for years to come!
It’s definitely challenging – not just the physical and emotional challenge of the rally itself but the months of fundraising, getting the car up to spec, costume prep (a big one for us!), child care planning, calling in a million favours, etc, etc.
But I think that’s why it has such an impact on us all and we keep coming back. We become part of the rally family. The good that comes from this on an individual as well as community level is remarkable and it is extraordinarily rewarding to be part of something so much bigger than ourselves.
