It’s an epic road trip for a good cause – to help country kids pursue their education and training dreams.
Last year’s Pig Push was a resounding success and now founders of the event Justin Fleming and Richie Fleming wants to turn Percy around and head back the other way, from Orange to Boorowa. They are taking Percy home!
“Every young person deserves the opportunity to access education and training no matter where they live, and we’re excited to hit the road again to get this message in the spotlight,” Justin says.
“Young people from the bush don’t have easy access to tertiary education and the Country Education Foundation, with Percy’s help, is working to help overcome the financial hurdles that often stop rural and regional students in their tracks.”
The fun and maybe even slightly crazy initiative asks sponsors, volunteers and all-round good people to push Percy, a giant paper mache pig, the 200kms from Orange to Boorowa in only seven days, with donations collected along the way. The Long Track Pantry in Jugiong has proudly signed on as this year’s major sponsor of the event.
