The RACQ CQ Rescue Talent Search is a fundraising Talent Search Competition held in Mackay. In 2013, Brooke Lee created the RACQ CQ Rescue Talent Search to bring more opportunities for our young talent in our regional communities. The main focus for the event is to raise much needed funds for RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter service. Since 2013 the event has been held each year in Mackay and raised over $150,000 over the 6 events.
The essential purpose of RACQ CQ Rescue (as a Queensland Rescue Helicopter Service) is to reduce loss of life, to reduce the likelihood of permanent neurological or physical impairment as an outcome of acute illness or severe trauma, and to reduce the number of days which emergency patients need to spend in hospital. RACQ CQ Rescue is a community helicopter rescue service with an operating base in Mackay on the Central Queensland Coast of Australia.
The predominant service region for RACQ CQ Rescue is from Bowen in the north to St Lawrence in the south which includes the majority of the Bowen Basin, the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
Come along to support this great event and enjoy a wonderful show.
