Why

  • Let’s use our girl power to help the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) by raising funds to help them purchase vital medical equipment. The Flying Doctor is a not-for profit organisation that saves thousands of Australian lives every year. Their vision began in Cloncurry, Queensland in 1928.

What

  • Our can-do goal is to raise $5,000. This will buy two pieces of equipment:
    1. New Born Anne manikin: Costs $3,457 Ex Gst https://laerdal.com/au/doc/222/Newborn-Anne
    2. The instant, intuitive and portable blood and fluid warming system: $1,543

  • EVERY cent raised will go directly towards buying this vital lifesaving medical equipment.

Prizes

  • Prizes for our Brisbane based girls: Two girls who raise the most funds over the period will win the opportunity to attend the RFDS Brisbane Base. This will include a private Base Tour and see behind the scenes of the state-of-the-art training facilities including the simulator room to experience a hands-on viewing of what’s involved to work for the RFDS and a special RFDS gift hamper.
  • Prizes for any online participating Australian girls: 10 runner ups of a virtual behind the scenes RFDS Base tour in your State and a gift hamper full of goodies will be sent out to you!
