Driving Challenge

Not up to walking? Why not join the Driving Challenge?

The MTMC Drive Challenge 2018 started from Wollongong, and cruised through to Sydney in support of Local Medical Research. Not as exhausting and twice the fun, drivers embarked on an activity filled adventure, visiting all of the top destinations and the best hidden gems that the Illawarra and Sutherland Shire has to offer.

Starting at the UOW Innovation Campus at 10.00 am for an 10:30 am departure, a group of over 60 participants played numerous games at WIN Stadium, collected free prizes at McDonalds Warrawong, took a selfie with the Fitzroy Falls, stopped for a feed at Bundanoon Hotel, painted and wine tasted at Gibraltar Hotel and then concluded at Rydges Cronulla at 6pm. 

There was prizes for winners and plenty of fundraising opportunities along the way. 


Thank you to all our amazing Drive Challenge Participants! You were all very competitive but these 3 teams came out on top...

Congratulations to Anna Tynan and her team for coming first in the Driving Challenge this year by collecting 90 points!
