WesCarpade is Camp Quality's first ever motoring adventure held in Western Australia. A fleet of 30 quirky vehicles will be travelling 2,000 km from Bunbury to Esperance on 4 – 11 August 2012.
The aim is to raise an engine-busting $300,000 to help Camp Quality create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.
WesCarpade is the culmination of months of fundraising by dedicated and hard-working fundraisers committed to making laughter the best medicine for children living with cancer and their families.
Along the way they'll meet truly inspiring Camp Quality families and pull into towns in a fanfare of sirens, horns, water cannons, lights and colour in true Camp Quality style.
The entrants will also visit local schools with the McDonald's Camp Quality puppets. The almost life-sized puppets will perform a version of their fun and educational play designed to help children become more aware of the need to be caring and supportive of people who have cancer.
This year WesCarpade sets off from Bunbury on August 4 and passes through Augusta, Karri Valley, Northcliffe, Albany, Katanning, Ravensthorpe and finishes up at Esperance on 11 August.
Our first year has attracted a number of comical cars including Where's Wally, Thomas the Tank Engine and wayward pirates. GWN7's own Weatherman Chris Mills is joining Wescarpade as a driver and will provide GWN7 viewers with an update on their adventures along the way.
Camp Quality's programs support children living with cancer and their families by building optimism and resilience, providing them with tools they need throughout their journey with cancer and beyond.
