CQ Rescue Talent Search

Be involved in the Largest Fundraising Talent Search in your Region!

The CQ Rescue Talent Search is a Charity Talent Search raising much needed funds for CQ Rescue. We encourage boys & girls, 4 years & over to be involved in our charity event as no modelling experience is required. CQ Rescue is a community helicopter rescue service with an operating base in Mackay on the Central Queensland Coast of Australia. The essential purpose of 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.
