We are calling on the Canberra community to support Mark and Tim Maguire in the 'Riverina Redneck Rally'.
The Riverina Redneck Rally is a large-scale event aiming to raise awareness of children diagnosed with cancer and other life threatening illness in partnership with Country Hope.
Country Hope is a country based, family centred support organisation dedicated to developing support programs and services, in response to the needs of country families.
The Riverina Redneck Rally challenges teams from across the Riverina to travel 2500km into remote Outback locations raising awareness and funding for children in need.
Mirrool local's Mark and Tim Maguire recently completed the 'Riverina Redneck Rally' travelling 2500 km in 5 days around outback Australia.
Mark and Tim were able to raise an incredible Raised 16k ($16,000) for their team - Charlie’s Angels and are currently the highest fundraising team. In total the Riverina Redneck Rally raised nearly 350k ($350,000) eclipsing there target of 275k.
Mark and Tim's cousin, Canberra midfielder Mitch Maguire says he "couldn't be prouder" of the pair.
"The Riverina Redneck Rally is a great cause helping some great people, and Mark and Tim have done an amazing job, I couldn't be prouder."
"To have the support of everyone in the area as well shows how strong small and rural communities are in supporting each other."
Part of the fundraising scheme was auctioning off footballing apparel in which the club helped out with thorough donating some 2019 playing and training kit.
"The club recognise that childhood cancer and other chronic life threatening illnesses place incredible stress on families across Australia, so in donating some apparel we were able to play a small part," said Maguire.
“For our players, supporters and staff to get behind such a great cause really shows how generous the Canberra Demons family is.”
