GPC's Curtis the Turtle with GRC Mayor Gail Sellers Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers and Gladstone Regional Councillors will help to ensure Botanic to Bridge participants stay hydrated as they burn up the pavement in the annual fun run this Sunday.

Gladstone Regional Council representatives will distribute refreshments to runners from their on-course water station situated on Goondoon Street.

Mayor Sellers said she is delighted that Council has the opportunity to be involved in the event, which promotes the importance of healthy and active lifestyles while contributing financially to children’s literacy program provider, the Exodus Tutorial Centre.

“We are very excited to assist with the water station on Sunday and be part of a wonderful event that encourages fitness at all levels and supports a very worthy community beneficiary,” Councillor Sellers said.

Funds raised from the event will be directed to the operational costs of Exodus Tutorial Centre to ensure its continuation, providing specific materials for the program and life-long skills for the teachers and students of Exodus.

The fun run features 8km and 3km courses, which start at the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens and Reg Tanna Memorial Park respectively, both finishing at the marina parklands where the Healthy Living Expo will be held.

All funds from Botanic to Bridge registrations will be directed back to the Exodus Tutorial Centre or to local schools.

Whether you're walking, jogging, running or volunteering, you can be assured that your participation will be helping our local kids.
