A cruise for a cause
There is nothing quite like hitting the open road with a classic playlist, snacks and some of your closest friends and family. But what if your road trip could save lives?
After losing their daughter, Beth, to suicide in 2005, Peter and Trish Fehon created the charity car event – Beyond Bitumen.
Over four days, teams of driving enthusiasts take on the New South Wales central west region, cruising in a mix of old cars and modern 4WDs, to help Beyond Blue work to protect everyone’s mental health and improve the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.
The event has been running for four years and has raised $985,572 to support the work of Beyond Blue. This year's event will leave Yass NSW on the morning of Friday 29 March 2019 and finish in Cowra NSW on Monday afternoon on 1 April 2019. A total of 100 cars have registered and over 1500km will be travelled.
