Ansvar Insurance has announced it will help families of soldiers who have been injured or killed in defence of Australia through its sponsorship of a participant in the 2011 Targa Tasmania car rally.
Ansvar’s CEO Andrew Moon said his company would provide $5000 to Team Legacy Assist, a participant in the 2011 Targa Tasmania car rally. The really is to be held across six days in April. The fundraising initiative was launched by former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, who is patron of Team Legacy Assist.
Andrew Moon said, “Team Legacy Assist aims to raise $100,000 for Legacy, as well as the Commando Welfare Trust, which supports families of soldiers from the Special Operations Command’s east coast units, who have been killed or injured on duty. The group consists of some passionate young Australians, including two talented commandos from the Australian Defence Force, and fits with Ansvar’s philosophy of supporting Australian youth. They will drive a Datsun 240Z around Tasmania, and I’m sure car lovers will be most envious of their pending journey.”
The Datsun 240Z is a small car model built in the 1970s, and has received acclaim as one of the best sports cars of its era.The members of Team Legacy Assist have spent many hours on their vehicle, and recently installed a robust engine especially for the challenge.
“The rally around Tasmania will undoubtedly be great fun, but the purpose of this adventure has a far deeper meaning,” Moon said.”Team Legacy Assist will drive in the Targa Tasmania rally to support the loved ones of fellow citizens who have bravely fought and died for their country, and helped to secure the freedom that we all enjoy today. Ansvar Insurance is honoured to assist in their journey, and I encourage everyone to dig deep and get behind this most worthy cause.”
