To celebrate the Good Friday Appeal’s 90 Years of Giving, one lucky Victorian entrant in Virtual R4K 2021 will win $12,000 of economy flights from Qatar Airways.

The prize contribution is just one part of a larger commitment to support the 2021 Good Friday Appeal, with Qatar Airways also planning a donation announcement on Good Friday.

Qatar Airways’ Vice President Australasia & North Asia, Mr. Thomas Scruby, said:

“During a difficult last 12 months, we are proud to have kept flying throughout the pandemic and bringing home as many travellers as possible. Australians have continued to champion our efforts on this journey, so we wanted to take the opportunity to thank the community for their support, and give back to those who need it most.”

“Every year, the Good Friday Appeal inspires the wider community to unite for a good cause, and this year is particularly significant following the impacts of COVID-19. We are honoured to be able to play a small part in this, and raise much-needed funds to support the critical work of The Royal Children’s Hospital.”

Virtual R4K 2021 asks entrants to participate in 90 minutes of movement between March 28-April 2, with funds raised going to the 2021 Good Friday Appeal.
