The Rise Above Cancer Convoy is a charity event that will be held at the EPIC (Exhibition Park in Canberra) on Sunday, 9th February 2020. It is a convoy of trucks that makes it way through the city, to raise money for those with cancer and their families in the ACT. Last year they raised a whopping $378,000 from the event.
The Rise Above Cancer Convoy is the largest event on Canberra's roads every year. The convoy concludes at the EPIC with a family day starting at 11:30am, with a whole host of family activities and entertainment.
