Where will proceeds go from the event?
This year the Rotary Club of Brisbane Airport will be raising funds for RACQ Careflight, the Rod Walker Memorial Fund and Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children.
RACQ Careflight operates helicopters and air ambulance jets to supply critical care doctors and paramedics throughout Australia. They attend to more than 10 patients a day and have airlifted over 30,000 patients over the last 30 years.
The Rod Walker Memorial Fund was established to assist Rod Walker's vision to have unmanned aircraft routinely benefit all Australians in applications such as search and rescue, bushfire fighting, emergency response, environmental and infrastructure management, and the provision of aerial services to rural communities.
The Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children ("ROMAC") provides medical treatment for children from developing countries in the form of life saving and/or dignity restoring surgery not accessible to them in their home country. To date, ROMAC has changed and saved the lives of over 400 children, enabling them and their families to live normal, happy lives.
We want to see the good work of these organisations continue by showing our support this Melbourne Cup Day.
