The Gibb Challenge is intent upon supporting charities with regional relevance and demonstrated integrity. In 2021, our event has once again selected the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) to be the principal beneficiary of our celebrated community event, with another ambitious fund-raising target of $500,000.
The demand for services is constantly growing with the RFDS receiving close to 40,000 calls for help in Western Australia last financial year. RFDS flew over 9,000 patients across our vast 2.5 million square kilometre state and provided many more with expert medical advice over the telephone or radio. On average their medical teams provide ICU level care in flight to 24 patients per day. That’s one person every hour of the day.
By supporting the RFDS, you’ll directly help in the delivery of emergency medical services and primary health care to those living, working and travelling throughout Western Australia.
