Botanic to Bridge registrations extended after tech glitch
REGISTRATIONS for this Sunday's Botanic to Bridge fun run have been extended after a technical glitch last night.
Event registrations were due to close on at 8pm on Wednesday night, but due to a technical failure with the Botanic to Bridge registration database, the registration has been extended until 8pm on Thursday night.
Gladstone Ports Corporation chief executive officer Craig Doyle said the event was not only a great way to keep fit and stay active, it was also an important fundraiser for local schools and community organisations.
"Over the past five years, Botanic to Bridge has invested over $200,000 into the Gladstone region, distributed via a major community beneficiary, and primary schools and secondary schools across the region," Mr Doyle said.
This year, community care provider the Pyjama Foundation has been appointed as the major beneficiary for the event.
The Pyjama Foundation empowers children in foster care with learning, life skills and confidence to change the direction of their life, and will now benefit from up to $20,000 from this year's Botanic to Bridge.
Funds received by the foundation will be used to train an additional 40 Pyjama Angels in the Gladstone region, providing more children with a chance to find their wings and reach their learning potential.
Head to www.botanictobridge.com.au before 8pm tonight to register for the 3km or 8km event.
