Car 3122 - The Midlife Lifters

We're taking part in the Variety Bash to help kids in need

G’day! We are three 40 something family men – who love nothing better to lift weights and sledge each other unmercifully.  We are so excited to be taking part in this year’s Variety Bash – travelling all the way from Melbourne Victoria to Geraldton WA – the long way round! 

The Variety Bash is a once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia in outrageously themed classic cars, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Throughout the event, we’ll be visiting local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs through the provision of educational, health and mobility equipment. And the giving doesn’t stop there! Variety continue to support children, families and communities throughout the year with funds raised from the Variety Bash.

As Fathers; we want nothing more than for all children to have an equal chance to succeed in life; and we’re going to raise heaps of money to help make that happen – get on board and help us give Aussie kids a fair go – donate today!

My Achievements

Goal! Ten donations received for kids in need!

$500 will supply an iPad for a non-verbal child

$1,000 will supply a specialised trampoline for children with sensory needs

$3,000 buys a portable scooter for a child with limited mobility

Oh wow $10,000 for kids in need. You are champs!!
