There’s never been a better time to go on a scavenger hunt and raise money for a good cause.

Raworth’s Linda Bullent is calling on teams of four to join her Cruisn For A Cause car rally to Port Macquarie next month to support Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation and help raise money for a cure.

Her friends Michelle Davis and Carole Underwood came up with the idea when they were looking for something fun to do with her that would help take her mind off her treatment regime.

When Ms Bullent heard about it she saw a fundraising opportunity – and now she needs your help to make it a reality.

Ms Bullent has been fighting back against terminal cancer since September last year and combining her determination to stay alive with a desire to help fund a cure.

She’s already raised $26,000 – mainly thanks to a fun day in December – and now she hopes to take the total to $30,000. 

“If we can generate some support for it that’d be great,” Ms Bullent said.

“It will take the teams five hours to get to Port Macquarie with the little stops along the way, it will be a fun day out.” 

Each team of four must meet at Targeted Fitness in King Street, East Maitland, on July 1 at 8am to collect their instructions and the riddles they will crack along the way. 

Teams will celebrate the journey with a three-hour dinner cruise at Port Macquarie before staying the night at T’s Tennis Resort.

They will end the event with breakfast at the resort on July 2 before making their way home. 

“It isn’t really a race, there’s no need to rush, we want people to take their time and enjoy it,” Ms Bullent said.

“They will be supporting a great cause that ultimately helps in research for treatment and ongoing support for those diagnosed, fighting and surviving cancer.”
