Dometic Follow the Sun road-trips get underway
Dometic's three Follow the Sun ambassador families hit the road on their respective road-trips yesterday to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Linda Bloffwitch and Grant Hanan, 'Adventure Mumma' Kate Richards and family (Rob, Josh and Charlie), and the McKay family (Cameron, Julie, Darcy, Tiarna, Maddison and Hamish) kicked off their Follow the Sun adventures from a kick-off party at the Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort in Cairns, Qld.
The families will travel separately from Cairns to Melbourne over 13 weeks, stopping at caravan parks, hosting Happy Hours and visiting attractions along the way.
This year, Dometic has partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the ambassadors will host fundraising activities during their trips to help support the foundation, and to raise awareness and fund research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.
Julie and Cameron McKay own and manage the August Moon Caravan Park in Innisfail, Qld. They will travel in their 2008 Jayco Sterling which has been decked out with $25,000 of Dometic products.
Kate ‘Adventure Mumma’ Richards and her husband Rob Mitchell will travel with their two children Josh and Charlie in the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s pink Winnebago Minnie caravan.
