Additional Information

Your safety is our main priority. Due to the nature of this event we have performed multiple risk assessments and implemented key structures in order to reduce the risk as much as possible. However there are certain elements of this activity that can’t be changed such as mother nature and physical hazards. All our official volunteers hold current advanced first aid certificates as well as undergo additional extensive training in regards to this event. For this event we utilise volunteers for roles that do not require additional training and are only implemented in low risk areas. For any reason that we feel your safety is compromised in any way, we will take immediate action including postponing/stopping the event. We at Red Rox Events & Fundraising want all our participants to have a safe and enjoyable experience. We pride ourselves in careful and extensive planning and look forward to seeing you at our event as we continue to Aim High in Changing Lives.
