KTM Australia Adventure Rallye partners with RFDS for 2018

The 2018 KTM Australia Adventure Rallye: Outback Run is set to take in some of the most remote adventure riding Australia has to offer, with feedback from Rallye riders in previous years who have expressed an interest in participating in the event in support of a charity or cause.

In response to this feedback and the remote nature of the 2018 Outback Run Rallye, KTM have announced a community partnership between the KTM Australia Adventure Rallye and the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Central Operations.

The Royal Flying Doctors Service helps more than 280,000 Australians each year

Nationally, the RFDS performs 100 aeromedical evacuations every day and provides emergency and primary health care to more than 280,000 Australians each year – that’s one person every two minutes. The RFDS relies on fundraising initiatives and donations from the community to purchase and medically-equip their aircraft – at a cost of more than $7 million each.

So in support of this partnership, KTM Australia is auctioning off the coveted “001” rider number – complete with a spot on the Rallye – with all proceeds going to the RFDS.

That’s right – if you missed out on getting into the 2018 KTM Australia Adventure Rallye, this is your chance to head into the Outback for an epic, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

This will take place in a live online auction from Wednesday March 14th 2018 (12.00pm AEST) to Friday March 16th 2018 (12.00pm AEST). The auction URL is https://galabid.com/auction/ktm2018 (link).

For KTM riders, Ready to Race isn’t just a slogan – it is a way of life. Support for the community partnership does not stop here however, with another fundraising initiative in place for all registered Rallye Riders.

Through an Everydayhero website, Registered Rallye Riders are encouraged to setup a profile page and raise funds through their network of friends, family and colleagues, with all funds going towards helping keep the RFDS crews in the sky.
