The Great Wheelbarrow Race
9 April, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12 May, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
The Great Wheelbarrow Race held from the 13th – 15th May 2016 is an annual event that has previously raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for all different charities.
The teams of 10 take turns pushing a wheelbarrow 140km over 3 days from Mareeba to Chillagoe, to raise money for their chosen charity.
Maddison Stockman and her family have chosen our charity to support. Maddi who is only 14 herself has pulled together a team of similar aged young adults and named themselves Keely’s Crusaders.
Anyone that would like to sponsor or support this team please let us know and we will pass your information onto Maddi.
