A fun way to support your local rescue helicopter!

Rescue Crew Challenge

Watch this space!

In light of Friday 15th tragic event, we have decided to postpone the Rescue Crew Challenge as we want to focus on supporting the teams involved and our community through this sad time.

We are looking at a new date later in the year and will advise our community once this is confirmed. 

In the meantime, feel free to get to know what the Rescue Crew Challenge is all about:

The Rescue Crew Challenge is an action-packed event for local businesses, that will test their teamwork, fitness, and problem-solving abilities. The Challenge is designed by the rescue crew themselves to reflect the everyday challenges they face on the job.

The biggest part of this challenge is saving a life.

Each business will submit a crew with the aim to raise $5,000 to save a life.

The Challenge day.
A day event where each crew will go head to head with to test fitness, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities. Their fundraising will affect various aspects of the challenge day!

How can you help?

Support our community

You can support the Rescue Helicopter Service by fundraising. The Rescue Helicopter Service is only partially government funded, meaning we rely on our community to help fund this life-saving Service.

The best way to fundraise for us is by hosting a fundraising event on behalf of Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust.
