The Special Olympics Gladstone Region had every reason to be happy last week when GPC handed them a cheque for $10,134.50.

The cheque came as a result of the funds raised by the Botanic to Bridge fun run on August 19.

Receiving the cheque on behalf of Special Olympics Gladstone Region was Secretary Karen Lee.

“We are truly overwhelmed, to receive this donation is just awesome,” Lee said.

GPC chief executive Leo Zussino said the Gladstone Special Olympics was a worthy recipient.

"To give them a sum of money like this gives them an opportunity to get some serious sports gear and do some serious training," Mr Zussino said.

“Who knows in four years time we may see some of these athletes in Rio de Janeiro representing Australia.”
