IN AN overwhelming display of generosity, the Audi Red Boot Rally has this year surpassed previous years by raising more than $310,000 to support the construction of the new Ronald McDonald House at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in South Brisbane.

Rallying in Nimbin and Byron

While in Nimbin the Rally teams participated in a challenge that saw them search the streets for a costume to wear and then travel to Byron Bay for the thirty-minute busking challenge in the Byron Bay Town Centre.

Now in its third year, the Audi Red Boot Rally has raised an astonishing $812,000 over three years for the Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland.

Celebrities get involved

Over three days, local business men and women and car captains including Rugby League legends Scott Prince and Gorden Tallis, former V8 Supercar driver Russell Ingall and ex AFL star Spida Everitt drove 18 of Audi’s superior performance vehicles.

The teams visited sick kids at the Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland in Brisbane, and visited Byron Bay, Nimbin, Lennox Head and returned to the Gold Coast for the final day.

McDonald’s Gold Coast Licensee, Mike Atkins said the fundraising effort would go directly to the construction of the new Ronald McDonald House at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in South Brisbane.
