‘Great Escape’ Rally hits town

The 2012 Cystic Fibrosis Charity car rally, known as the ‘Great Escape’, arrives in Merimbula tomorrow (Thursday) when 47 vehicles complete the final leg.

The 10-day rally set off from Orange on October 8 visiting Leeton, Broken Hill, Hawker, Pinnaroo, Moama, and is tonight in Marlo, East Gippsland.

The cars will arrive in Merimbula on Thursday morning and drive in a street parade from 12.30pm, starting from the car park near the airport.

They will travel into town along Market Street and finish at Magic Mountain.

The rally, now in its 10th year, raises vital funds and creates awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Australia, for a condition of which there is no cure.

The funds help pay for genetic research and study of new treatments and technology. 

Residents and visitors are invited to welcome rally’s finale and help support the cause.

The participants will be celebrating the completion of the journey at Magic Mountain from about 1pm where they will be having lunch and letting their hair down.
