Endeavour Foundation ready to take part in the 2012 Great Endeavour Rally

Endeavour Foundation will have its own car in the 25th anniversary of the Great Endeavour Rally this year thanks to a generous donation from former rally participants in Rockhampton. 

The QR National Rollingstock Maintenance Team decided it was time to part ways with their Ford Falcon station wagon, named ‘Bombardier’, and have donated it to the Endeavour Foundation cause.

The car will again see competition in July 2012 with the Endeavour Foundation team gearing up to navigate outback Queensland from Charleville to the Gulf of Carpentaria and back to Yeppoon.
 
The car represents a significant donation to Endeavour Foundation, which uses the rally to raise money and awareness, to provide opportunities for over 3,350 people with a disability across Queensland and New South Wales.

A member of the team that donated the car, Laurie Denman, said his team have always been happy to support the Endeavour Foundation cause.

“During our involvement with Endeavour Foundation, our rally team has had a lot of fun and we have seen much of our beautiful country,”  Mr Denman said.

The donation is made even more significant as now the Endeavour Foundation team will be able to take part in the 25th anniversary of the Great Endeavour Rally.  Over its 25 year history, the rally has raised in excess of four million dollars for the organisation, making it the largest single fundraising event run by Endeavour Foundation.

The rally, which originated in Toowoomba in 1988 as a bicentennial celebration, has lead teams far and wide across Australia’s remote and regional areas.

With almost $50,000 already raised, Endeavour Foundation is confident that the public’s generosity will help it each the $500,000 target.
