This year's Rota-Rally will benefit some Super-Heroes who are always there for those in need.
When you send an SOS, Air Mercy Service is there to help. AMS urgently requires funding to replace the tractor they use to tow their aircraft out of the hangar.
We're also gathering food donations to assist Melkbos Rotary who supports a couple of organisations who help destitute families in Melkbos.
More details on the beneficiaries page.
Rota-Rally is a timed, fun-rally - starting in the V&A Waterfront and ending in Darling.
