Road Boss Rally to give small towns a boost

THIS week 170 adventurers have been hitting the long, hard backroads from Cowra to the Sunshine Coast, via Thargomindah and Noorama on the first leg of the 2019 Road Boss Rally.

Last year, the rally raised more than $250,000 for the national online charity, with this year's Road Boss Rally entrants driven to make a difference in remote communities.

The 10-day 4250km rally is a major fundraiser for GIVIT.

There will be three members of TV's popular Bondi Rescue, Corey, Reidy and Whippet, in the Bondi Beast with film production team producing a documentary.

Dubbed "the Road Boss” for fearlessly taking participants where most rally organisers wouldn't dare go, founder and organiser Jamie Lawson said the rally would travel across some of the most challenging backroads across outback NSW and Queensland to the Sunshine Coast.

"It's a safe rally, not a speed course but a huge challenge for drivers and navigators that's also lots of fun while raising funds for GIVIT and supporting communities along the way,” Mr Lawson said.

Along the rally route, the Road Boss Rally and GIVIT will deliver donations to communities.
