Cancellation of 2020 Great Endeavour Rally
For more than 30 years the Great Endeavour Rally has been raising dust and dollars for people with intellectual disability. We’ve readily tackled every track and challenge in this time, but this year has brought with it one that even we cannot get around.
The safety and wellbeing of our participants, volunteers, and the regional communities we travel through has always been our top priority. The ever-changing nature of the current global pandemic has meant that we cannot fully guarantee this as part of the 2020 event.
Government regulations around movement, gathering, and public safety restrictions have meant that the immediate period ahead of us is uncertain.
Consultation with key event stakeholders, including the Australian Army, has led us to the decision to cancel the 2020 Simpson Desert Adventure in its present form.
We do not take this decision lightly – this is the first time since the Rally’s inception in 1988 that we have had to cancel the event. But this does not mean we are putting the breaks on our support for people in need.
People with intellectual disability are amongst our most vulnerable Australians, and your participation in the Rally is so important in providing opportunities for the people we care for to live their best life.
We encourage everyone who can give their voice or a donation to share and give directly to our Urgent Appeal.
SIMPSON DESERT ADVENTURE
Steer your way through the Great Endeavour Rally and find out why this is one of Australia’s longest and most successful charity motoring events.
Each day you’ll travel through picturesque Australian scenery and visit remote destinations that few others get to see. You and your crew will enjoy breathtaking scenery by day and relax around the campfire each night.
The Great Endeavour Rally is not a race or a time trial. It is an adventure through parts of Australia that brings together the camaraderie and spirit of an amazing group to support people with disability.
"Why would you not? If you get the opportunity to do it, you’d have to be absolutely crazy not to have a go"
