All cars are encouraged to gain donations from selling advertising space on their cars and gather items from local businesses to auction at the various towns, involving the local people of the towns in the fund raising efforts.
John and Murray had no hesitation deciding on Western Care Lodge as the charity, both having experiences with cancer and its terrible impact on lives. Now that the Lodge is complete the money will be directed to Fund raising for Western Clinical Trials.
A list of towns and dates were decided on and Cruisin-Along became a reality. Our first trek started with only 15 cars, our second trek 28 cars and 2011 trek 34 cars.We originally stayed in small villages but as the group got larger so did the towns.

Cruisin-Along was a way of letting people in isolated areas become aware that there is accommodation at the new hospital grounds in Orange. Some of these towns have raised tens of thosands of dollars towards the cause, Cancer Care Western appreciated the support from these towns.
In 2018 Crusin-along came under Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak.
ALL donations go direct to Rotary Orange Daybreak.
Cruisin-along itself is fully volunteered & has no business status or overheads.
