Tango is proud to be supporting the Wadeye Girls Project which is dedicated to creating better futures for young girls from the ages of 6 to 18 years from the remote indigenous community of Wadeye, (also known as Port Keats) in the Northern Territory. Sarah Kings will be completing the Big Red Run a 250km, 6 day run across the Simpson Desert starting at Birdsville (Queensland) on Saturday 27th June 2015. Sarah will be joined by three girls from Wadeye aged 12 – 14 years. Each of the girls has been chosen for their strength of character to build a better future for themselves and their families and to surmount the challenges of growing up in a remote indigenous community.

Tango is committed to supporting rural communities and, as part of that commitment, will be supporting Sarah and the crew by providing a hearty warm breakfast on Wednesday 24th June as they travel past our Chinchilla, Queensland office.

Our wonderful Equipment Manager Laura Schofield (who is based out of our Chinchilla, QLD operations) brought this worthy cause to our attention:

As you may be aware I am a reasonably ballsey girl and in general I can not dismiss that I do encourage girl power – even to the extent that I once brought my 6 year old girl a tshirt that states “whatever boys can do girls can do better” ha ha ha.

I am passionate about helping others and small rural communities and respect the isolation that Australia has to offer. I have learned of a very inspirational woman (Sarah Kings) who is working toward a very ambitious goal – to complete a 6 day 250km run to raise money for the Wadeye Girls Project.

I would love to show them that Tango is a company that cares, as I have been shown on numerous occasions.

Go Brody, Melissa, Waynie and Sarah – we’ll be cheering you on in spirit the whole way!
