Scouts Rally SA have announced that they have appointed Little Heroes Foundation as the official charity of the 2013 event in May.
Scouts Rally SA is South Australia’s only round of the 2013 East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship. It is run in the forest and council roads around Mt Crawford, Barossa Valley, Gawler and Mount Barker. As part of the partnership, Scouts Rally SA will assist in promoting and raising funds for Little Heroes Foundation in the lead up and during the event, held May 24-26.
Little Heroes Foundation raises funds for essential equipment and services accessed by thousands of seriously ill children and their families. Since 1996, they have raised more than $13 million dollars for lifesaving facilities at Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and to provide daily support to families around Australia through their Little Heroes Care program.Two lucky Little Heroes Foundation supporters will also get to experience the rally first hand, thanks to a charity auction for two rally car rides.
Little Heroes Foundation Chairman, Chris McDermott said about the partnership, “We are excited to be the official charity of this year’s Scouts Rally SA. This event continues to be an extremely popular part of the State’s motorsport calendar and we’re proud that proceeds raised will help support seriously ill kids” continued Mr McDermott.
“This partnership is a great opportunity for our sport and its supporters and friends to provide tangible benefit towards the Foundations stellar goals. We are proud to be involved, and I am confident of strong support” said Scouts Rally SA Clerk of Course Ivar Stanelis.
