The RFDS helps someone every 2 minutes and with a fleet of 68 aircraft they flew 26,157,502 kilometres in 2016 which is the equivalent of 600 flights around the earth!
How can you help the RFDS continue their amazing service? Enter Dumbleyung local and owner of the Dumbleyung Roadhouse Rick Noble!
Selected at random to participate, Rick will take to Lake Dumbleyung in winter to complete a water sport (ski, wake board, biscuit etc.) in fancy dress to raise funds for a community bouncy castle and his charity of choice, the RFDS, if he achieves the greatest amount of donations.
Time is ticking and there are only seven days left to donate to see your local complete the dare!

The CRC has randomly selected and asked three community members to take part in the challenge and help raise funds for a cause. The community can then donate to a particular person or all three people involved. The person who receives the greatest amount of donations will have to go through with the challenge set for them.
Total proceeds from the 2017 MAYyouDARE challenge will go 50% towards a charity of the winner’s choice and 50% to the Dumbleyung CRC to assist with purchasing a community bouncy castle. The community bouncy castle will be available to hire for local events, football games, Christmas/street parties, birthday parties or any party! Plus, it will also assist the CRC in becoming a sustainable not for profit business by hiring to other communities.
