POP open the diary and jot these dates down, as Drive 4 Life is gearing up for two massive tours in 2019.
The first tour will see up to five groups (of up to 10 vehicles) return to the Victorian High Country, from April 28 to May 3. This tour will start and finish in Harrietville at 3:30pm, and punters will cover between 450 and 500km.
The second tour will depart from Broken Hill and visit the Flinders Ranges, explore the Corner Country and pop into Tibooburra, before returning to Broken Hill. This trip will run from September 8 to September 15, and it will cover much larger distances than the first tour – between 2100 and 2300km.
Drive 4 Life advises that vehicles must have high and low range, a minimum of all-terrain tyres, and a five-watt UHF radio with an external aerial. Attendees must also be self-sufficient for all camping and food/drink needs.
A full list of essential and recommended items can be found here: (http://drive4life.com.au/index.php/tour-information)
All participants are asked to donate $1000 to Northcott, and every cent donated goes directly to them. As an added incentive to sign up for both tours, Drive 4 Life is offering a $500 discount to anyone who does both. Too easy!
To date, Drive 4 Life has raised a mammoth $804,500 for Northcott Equipment Solutions, a branch of the Northcott foundation that supports children and young adults – and their families – with disabilities. Northcott currently offers more than 40 services across NSW and assists more than 13,000 individuals.
