AN OUTBACK ODYSSEY TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CANCER RESEARCH

Categories:Clark Jacobs Alerts, Client Alert

Later this month one of our managers, Adrian Burns, along with his brother Chris, will participate in a unique five-day challenge, tackling some of Australia’s worst roads in a clapped-out car to raise money for the Cancer Council.

Dubbed the Mystery Box Rally, the 150 participating teams start and end in Dubbo, however they will only be told their daily destination at breakfast each morning. Adrian and Chris will face long days with rocky roads, river crossings and other unknown obstacles, with fingers-crossed that their vehicle makes it to each pit stop.

You can follow the progress of Adrian and Chris’s team, Lethal Weapons, on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SBRLethalWeapons

The rally will involve a Doctors and Nurses dress-up day, so if any doctors have old uniforms or gear that they can donate then please get in touch with Adrian at our office, tel: 02 9264 1111. Alternatively, Adrian and Chris will dress up as nurses if a nurse uniform is accompanied by a cash donation!

For anyone who would like to donate to the team you can do so HERE
