We’re T minus 2 for departure and we’re getting excited (and more than a little apprehensive about the forecast cold snap.)
Line positions were determined last Thursday and, based on our fundraising efforts, we’ll be starting in ninth place on the grid.
Amanda joined Annie Gaffney on ABC Sunshine Coast yesterday to chat about the Rally and our preparations. You can listen here – fast forward to half way.
ATL Graphix have done an incredible job adding the Kenny’s Angels logo to the bonnet of our car and making our sponsor’s stickers shine – thanks Bruce and Kerry!
Beerwah Tyres have shouted us some fresh new tyres for our front wheels (giving us another spare). We have a feeling we’ll be thanking Adrian and the team on the side of a dusty road somewhere along the track!
So all that’s left now is to load up and head to the Gold Coast on Friday for final scrutineering and our driver briefing.
You can keep track of our progress during the rally on our facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/kennysangelsrally/
We’re still aiming to raise as much money as we can for the Endeavour Foundation – so please keep your donations coming – every dollar counts!
See you on the finish line!
Sonia, Susan and Amanda

On April 21 Susan and Amanda headed to Imbil and put our rally car (and our post-wedding hangovers) through its paces and did a trial one day rally through the bush around Gympie/Imbil/Widgee.
It was wet and slippery and we got it sideways a couple of times but we did it!
We can’t wait for the big rally.

We hosted the annual City versus Country Cricket Day on 7 October with proceeds going towards our fundraising efforts for the Endeavour Foundation.
The rain threatened to disrupt play, but cricket prevailed.
At stumps, against all odds (and to everyone’s surprise) Country were the winners.
Thanks to the cricketers’ generous donations we raised $352 for the Endeavour Foundation!
On 1 October we farewelled the fifth member of Kenny’s Angels – John.
Before his departure for WA, John had been working on getting our rig rally-ready: replacing filters, belts and hoses so we start the rally in the best nick possible.
We’re grateful for all his hard work and for John and Jan’s unexpected and generous donation of $600 towards the cause.
Thanks John, we hope you and Jan have a terrific time in WA and we promise to keep you updated on our progress!
To what lengths will four mums from Glass House Mountains go to for a break?
Turns out they’ll drive from the Gold Coast to Yamba via Dubbo!
Our all-woman team will be raising dust and dollars for the Endeavour Foundation by joining the Great Endeavour Rally in June 2018.
