Camp Quality’s esCarpade a wheelie whacky adventure

A CAVALCADE of wacky cars dressed up to raise money for kids with cancer will roll into Grafton later this month.

On Saturday Camp Quality's esCarpade of 60 cars, all at least 20-years-old, will leave Bundaberg on a 2000km drive to Wollongong.

The motoring adventure fundraiser will stop off at Grafton on October 15.

The drivers will have lunch at the Grafton Golf Club, then attend Grafton Public School at 1.30pm for the Camp Quality Puppet Show. About 700 students are scheduled to attend.

"This is the 22nd year of esCarpade, and we're hoping your support for our 60 decked out cars can help us reach our target of $1.3 million, which goes towards supporting children living with cancer and their families," said esCarpade manager Monika Kodrun.

A participant in this year's esCarpade, Michael Brown said Camp Quality supported his family in so many ways when their son Cameron had cancer.

"We all went away to family camps where we met other people in similar situations who became good friends and a strong sense of support," Mr Brown said.

"Time out with Camp Quality is so much more than a fun weekend. It's spending time with people who know what you're going through. It's also the foundation for strong child, sibling and family friendships that grow and survive on trust and understanding."

Both teams and individuals have been fundraising all year to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.
