Become a community fundraiser
Empower children and adults with disability to reach their potential and have fun while doing it
You can organise your own fundraising event to raise much needed funds for us or you can take part in another fundraising event like the City2Surf or Blackmores Running Festival!
Create your own fundraising event
Whether it’s a trivia night, dress up disco, charity auction, raffle, garage sale or something completely outside the box– we can give you tips and support to run your own event.
We can work with you to make your event a success by giving you handy hints, materials, ideas and budget guidelines
The money you raise at your event will give us the opportunity to deliver more essential services to children and adults with disability.

What is Drive4Life and how does it work?
Drive 4 Life is a zero profit fundraising organisation which is currently raising funds for Northcott – an organisation which provides a wide range of services to people with disability. Drive 4 Life has been running 4WD tours since 2006 and has so far raised $837,000.
Every participating vehicle is asked to make a donation of $1,000 to Northcott – this includes the organisers’ vehicles and group leaders’/other support vehicles. Every cent that you donate is going directly to Northcott and is tax deductible. All organising and running costs of the Tour are being borne by sponsors and the tour organisers.
If you decide that you would like to participate, go to the Drive 4 Life homepage, complete the Booking Form and Terms and Conditions and submit electronically.
Once your booking is confirmed, we will send you more details about the trip itself. You will also receive a request to submit your deposit donation of $200, which is due upon confirmation of your place on the Tour. The balance of your donation ($800) is payable 2 months before the Tour start date.
* PLEASE NOTE: The organisers of the 4WD for Wheelchairs Tour reserve the right to accept or refuse a booking application at their sole discretion.
How the 2020 Tour will work
The Drive 4 Life 2020 Outback Tour will traverse from Alice Springs, NT to Balladonia, WA via some of Len Beadell’s famous Outback Tracks. Leaving Alice Springs on 6 August 2020, the Tour will traverse the Sandy Blight Junction Road, Great Central Road and Connie Sue Highway, finishing at Balladonia on the western edge of the Nullarbor Plain on 15 August 2020.
There will be 10 days of travelling remote outback tracks with loads of historical points along the way. The Sandy Blight Junction Road is described as the most scenic of Len Beadell’s tracks, whilst the Connie Sue Highway is another must do for lovers of outback adventures.
