2021 Avis Budget Group Cure Kids 1000

A fun-filled, fundraising car rally for Cure Kids

Join teams from around the country for the 2021 Avis Budget Cure Kids 1000 car rally!

The Avis Budget Cure Kids 1000 is a non-racing, charity car rally organised by the good people at Avis Budget New Zealand.

Building on the massive success of the 2019 rally – which raised an incredible $32,000 for Cure Kids child health research – this epic event is a chance to travel through the stunning MacKenzie Country and Christchurch region with a group of like-minded explorers.

About the challenge:

The challenge is to drive a registered vehicle, with a current WOF, costing up to $1000. Event organisers will reveal challenges for teams to complete along the rally route and points will be awarded based on performance. Whilst the rally is not a driving competition, there is a supreme trophy and sub-prizes to be awarded at the wrap up event/ charity auction post-rally.

Event Details:

Travelling roads less-chartered through Mackenzie Country and taking in some of the most breath-taking scenery the South Island has to offer, this isn’t a challenge for the faint-hearted.

Kicking off at Peppers Bluewater Resort, Tekapo on Friday the 29th of October 2021, teams will cover some seriously hardy terrain, circling back to Tekapo for the night then on through South Canterbury on the 30th of October, arriving in Christchurch at Peppers Clearwater Resort for a much-deserved celebration to acknowledge the amazing efforts of the team and support crew.

In total, teams will cover 1000km in just two days, making themselves known to the local communities along the way, visiting schools, and thanking local businesses for their support, while raising awareness of Cure Kids.

All teams must be committed to raise as much as they can in sponsorship/ donations with all funds going to Cure Kids to help fund research into child health.
