Organise an event

Hosting an event is fun, but it can also help rural and remote communities in need 

Rural Doctors Foundation is extremely grateful to organisations including  Morgans, Oz Aid and Hibernian Race Club who host events and donate the proceeds to Rural Doctors Foundation. There are also a band of committed individuals who  participate in community events and seek sponsorship for their efforts with proceeds to Rural Doctors Foundation.

Big Dry Friday

Big Dry Friday is organised by Morgans to recognise the importance of rural and regional Australia, to connect city and country and to provide support where it's needed most. Rural Doctors Foundation is a beneficiary of the event.

Oz Aid Drag Racing

It was loud and it was loads of fun. Mik Oberle provided entertainment and there were lots of loud cars, jumping castles, face painting and delicious food. And all in the name of a great cause - helping rural communities.

Hibernian Race Day

From the horse races, to the yabby races to fashions on the field, the Hibernian Race Day is an iconic country event. This year, the Hibernian Race Club raised much needed funds for Rural Doctors Foundation.

Hell of the West

Three rural doctors decided they could not sit in their practice and talk about heath - they need to walk the talk - or in this case - swim, cycle and run! And all while raising funds to provide vital medical equipment for rural communities.
