Base to Bush kicks off for 2021

It’s that time of year again – our virtual fitness and fundraising event Base to Bush kicks off today, and runs from the start of August to the end of September.

Base to Bush is a virtual event that challenges individuals or teams to walk, run or cycle hundreds of kilometres over six weeks towards one of our Flying Doctor service locations in the bush, while raising funds for RFDS VIC in the process.

RFDS Victoria ran its first Base to Bush challenge last year in the peak of Victoria’s COVID-19 lockdown. This event forms part of our wider Ground Crew Season and has proved to be a fun way to connect with our community and support better health, wellbeing and social connection.

While the event takes place from August to September, you only need to compete during any six weeks of your choosing. To find out more information about the challenges available and how to sign up, head to the website
