A Parkes resident is taking on a new adventure in September because he wants to make a difference and support the work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. David Williams will be taking part in the inaugural Outback 4WD Adventure event starting in Cobar on 22nd September to raise funds for prostate cancer research.
“I have never been in any rallies or fundraising drives before, but have helped catering for many such events passing through at Lake Cargelligo,” said David. He was inspired to take on this adventure as he has quite a few close friends who have experienced serious issues with prostate cancer.
Up to 40 cars will be participating in the week-long rally visiting many iconic towns in the outback, and each one has to raise at least $1,500 to participate. David said his aim was to get as many donations as possible to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and would be happy with any donation made on the page he has created on everydayhero.

In Australia 3,300 men a year die from prostate cancer. That is nine a day.
