Over 80 rally cars and other vehicles have combined for a charitable tour around the region aimed at helping children in need.
The second day of the Variety Resurrection Run got underway in Dubbo on Monday morning, after participants had travelled through Newcastle and Merriwa on day one.
Organiser and regional manager Vic Shields said it was a relief to see an event finally held after earlier attempts in the year had fallen apart due to COVID-19 restrictions.
"It's a combination of three of our major fundraising events we've had to cancel because of the COVID situation, it's the NSW Bash, it's the B2B Bash and our Four-Wheel Drive Adventure all rolled into one," Mr Shields said.
"It's good to get everyone together, especially as we haven't been able to get together as much this year, we haven't been able to travel, so it's a fundraiser to help the kids, but also a celebration of what we're now allowed to do."
The event has already attracted a sizeable number of participants, 'at least 230' with other support crew and figures involved as well.
"We've got 84 cars, and 10 with our COVID officials," Mr Shields said.
"It's very good to get people back on the road and keep our families together, helping out and raising money to help out kids in need."
The drivers were targeting a Bourke arrival by Monday night, with stops in Cobar, Parkes and Mudgee to follow.
"People there should keep an eye out and give us a wave and we'll be bringing a fair bit of tourism dollars to spend in their towns," Mr Shields said.
While the charitable organisation has been faced with difficulties this year due to their inability to deliver grants and programs at the usual rate due to COVID-19, many grants are still available.
Those grants and scholarships go to children in need of support, particularly those in financial hardship, or dealing with disability or chronic illness.
Details about how an individual can show their support or donate to the cause are available online at the Variety website.
