i98fm Illawarra Convoy & Illawarra Community Foundation
The i98fm Illawarra Convoy contributes to a range of local groups and individuals through the Illawarra Community Foundation. The Illawarra Community Foundation provides financial assistance and respite services to individuals and their families living in the Illawarra South Coast regions who are suffering financially due to a potentially life-threatening illness. It also offers financial assistance to any association or organisation whose objects are like those of the Illawarra Community Foundation. On top of this, the Foundation provides direct funding for the purchase of medical equipment for hospitals within the Illawarra and Shoalhaven Health District.
The i98fm Illawarra Convoy is a much-anticipated community event on the Illawarra Calendar. The 2018 Convoy raised an astounding total of $2,000,000 for the Foundation. The event, now in it’s 15th year, saw 721 trucks and 965 motorbikes travel 70 kilometres to help the families and kids. There has been a phenomenal amount raised in 14 years, with the total funds raised at $13,450,158.!
