The RFDS in VIC

Fundraise

Fundraising

Thank you for taking the fist step in supporting the Flying Doctor in Victoria.

By supporting the Flying Doctor Victoria, you are helping us to work in close partnership with rural and remote communities to provide vital services such as eye care, community transport, wellbeing services, telehealth, speech pathology and dental care (to name a few) across the State.

Your support keeps Victorians healthy.

Our brilliant fundraisers are crucial to our success. They go by the name Ground Crew and are a dynamic group of people who fundraise in many different ways, whether that be by participating in Flying Doctor events or hosting their own unique events in their local community.

By joining Ground Crew you will become a part of a special community for supporters of the Flying Doctor who are passionate about helping our mates in the Bush.

Sound like something you'd like to be part of? Join our Ground Crew now.

Base to Bush

Base to Bush is an annual virtual event for the Royal Flying Doctor Service Victoria. Taking place in August, this challenge is an opportunity for you and your mates to walk, run or cycle over 6 weeks – building regular exercise to virtually travel from our Airbase at Essendon Fields to one of three Flying Doctor Wellbeing locations in the Bush.

Outback Morning

In March 2021 Australians across the country will celebrate, and support the life-changing work of the Flying Doctor by hosting an Outback Morning Tea with colleagues, class mates, family and friends.
