What is Pig Push?

In March 2017 a group of people from Boorowa, NSW set themselves and their town a task – to push a giant model pig 200kms from Boorowa to Orange, NSW. Why?! To raise money for the Country Education Foundation of Australia.

This year we’re DOING IT AGAIN, but this time we’re taking Percy (the giant model pig) home to Boorowa and calling on a few extra hands (and legs) to help out on the roadtrip. Percy needs to be home for the 25th Birthday of CEF!

CEF knows young Australians in rural, regional and remote areas are as bright and ambitious as those living in metropolitan centres, but when it comes to higher education and jobs, young people from the bush face challenges that many of their city counterparts may not share.

CEF – with the help of Percy and his pushers – is working to close that gap, and make opportunities equal for all through grants, scholarships, mentoring and support.
