The Great Endeavour Rally brings the Aussie driving community to support people with disabilities.

A TOURING group of around 40 vehicles will hit the Cape at the end of the week, providing a cash injection for the region.

The Great Endeavour Rally is the biggest fundraiser for the Endeavour Foundation as it aims to support people with disabilities.

The 2023 rally, which lasts for nine days and begins in the Cape on Friday, has more than 50 participants and around 40 vehicles, including the Australian Defence Force.

In 35 years, the Great Endeavour Rally has raised more than $12 million dollars to support people with disabilities with in-home care, educational tools to live independently and gaining employment.

“Everyone has a dream whether you’re able-bodied or have a disability and if we can arm people with the right tools to help achieve that dream, that’s a job well done in my books,” Endeavour Foundation event specialist Nathan Woolhouse said.

Rally participants raise funds in various ways, through sponsorships, fundraising events, social media and market sales.

2023 rally teams will take in the sights up to Loyalty Beach before heading back down to Cairns.
