Help the Red Cross Birdman soar
The iconic Moomba Birdman Rally is back on March 9 for another year of splashes, thrills, and spills as everyday Melbournians dress to impress, and flap to fly, or flop into the Yarra, all in the name of charity.
Red Cross is excited to be one of three charity partners for the event, and one of only sixteen birdmen daring to 'fly the Yarra'. Red Cross' very own high-flyer Joel will be stepping into the Bird Arena and 'flying' for humanity!
Each participant must create a 'flying contraption' in the Hawk class, or dress up in a costume in the Penguin class, jump off a 4m platform, and attempt to fly across the Yarra River.
To give him an extra boost, Red Cross birdman Joel will be awarded a much needed extra metre to his flight distance for every $100 raised over $500.
The birdman who has the biggest total flying distance, including these extra fundraising metres, will be the overall charity jackpot winner. All funds raised will go towards Red Cross.
