Whitsunday Jet Ski Tours third highest fundraiser for Variety Jet Trek
The Whitsunday Jetski Tours team has successfully completed another Variety Jet Trek with the added accomplishment of being the third highest fundraiser in the event this year. The team participated in the 2012 Yamaha Variety Clarence to Coral Jet Trek, raising just under $5000 for Variety Queensland.
Sam Nikov took on the challenge of jetskiing the 700km trek from the Clarence River to Tin Can Bay to raise funds for children’s charity Variety Queensland, with Whitsunday Jetski Tour owners Steve and Toni Ward as the support team. This year, 30 riders competed with the support of 50 road crew and $62 000 overall was raised for Variety Queensland.
“It was a great week spending time with fellow jetskiers, but most importantly, knowing that we were working towards the bigger goal of helping sick and disadvantaged children is the most satisfying part for everyone who competed in Jet Trek. It is a hard ride but well worth it and Sam did a fantastic job,’ Toni said.
Steve, Toni and their children also had the opportunity to catch up with Grant Denyer as he was covering Jet Trek for breakfast show, Sunrise, which was a highlight for all involved and great exposure on a national level.
“We really want to thank everyone for their support with our fundraising and we are looking forward to doing it all again next year,” said Toni.
