Adventure aids kids
VARIETY WA has raised $182,938 after a weeklong road adventure by WA'S coast to help children in need.
The 21st Variety 4WD Challenge kicked off on May 20, with 34 participants travelling from Dongara to spectacular Dirk Hartog Island in the Shark Bay area.
Variety WA chief executive Michael Pailthorpe said the Variety 4WD Challenge was a fun weekend at an increasingly popular event.
“The greatest reward is knowing that their fun weekend is making a difference to the lives of WA kids in need,” he said.
Mount Claremont residents Marc and Danielle Diffen, as well as Clive Hartz, of West Perth, are regulars on the fundraising drive.
Marc has been involved with Variety WA after father Ian completed the first 4WD in 1997.
Marc continues his father's legacy by attending Variety WA events with wife Danielle regularly.
“Variety helps kids and families who fall through the cracks of government support in a way that pragmatically improves their quality of life and I am now unashamedly a fan,” he said.
West Perth resident Clive Hartz was on his 14th event.
