Home Registrations open for 10th Botanic to Bridge
Registrations are open for the 10th Botanic to Bridge (B2B) FunD Run with keen entrants sprinting to sign up.
Member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher encouraged families, businesses and keen runners to get a group together and support the community event.
"Now in its tenth year, B2B has raised close to $400,000 for local schools and community groups," Mr Butcher said.
"Last year more than 3,600 people took part in B2B, and I have no doubt we'll smash that record in 2019."
Gladstone Ports Corporations (GPC) Acting CEO Craig Walker said he is proud to partner with local businesses to deliver such a fun, family friendly event that caters to all ages and abilities.
“I can’t wait to see everyone at the start lines, the event is almost ingrained in Gladstone’s footpaths thanks to all those pairs of feet over the years raising a significant amount of money for local schools and community beneficiaries,” Mr Walker said.
“This year over $400,000 will be donated back to our community, which is a testament to the fantastic community support received over the last ten years.
“I must also acknowledge that B2B would not be possible without the support from sponsors and events partners, particularly our platinum sponsor Santos GLNG who have run beside us each year since the events inception.
“It’s great to have Santos GLNG, our sponsors and event partners back to join us for our 10 year anniversary.”
A special thanks must go to major event sponsors: Smit Lamnalco, Gladstone Regional Council, Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre (GECC), Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET), Australia Pacific LNG, Workforce Road Services, Orica, Calliope Bendigo Bank, Departure Point, HIT Network, Seven News, The Observer and Gladstone News.
Applications close for the community beneficiary this Sunday, 2 June, with the successful beneficiary to be announced in the coming weeks.
Registrations are now open for the August 18 event, with early birds able to take advantage of a 10% special by using the code B2BEarly at the checkout.
