How we started
Ross Alexander was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2013. He joined the NSW Prostate Cancer Foundation Board in 2015 to support the work of the Foundation and to “give a bit back”. Ross believes that his survival today is the result of the advances in medical research, science and the awareness campaigns that the Foundation funds and promotes today.
In the past 30 years Ross has supported many charity car rallies as an entrant and during this 30 years has raised in excess of $300,000 personally. With financial funding being the most important requirement of the Prostate Cancer Foundation today, in 2017 Ross sought the help of Peter Fehon (Charity Car Events, owner and originator) and Vic Widman (Great Divide Tours) to run an Outback Adventure and raise funds for Prostate Cancer medical research.
The Outback 4WD Adventure Vision
A 7 day event, taking your 4WD vehicle off the bitumen and onto the dirt and gravel roads of the great Australian outback. We will visit many iconic outback towns – enjoy sensational country food and hotel accommodation organised for you every night. All this whilst we raise funds to support Prostate Cancer Research – an insidious disease that will affect 1 in 5 blokes. Don’t miss this great week away in the magnificent and picturesque Victorian High Country! Since it began the Outback 4wd Adventure has raised $571,000. Join us and help reach our goal of $1 million to fund life-saving prostate cancer research.
