Finance to get fit

UP to $100,000 is on offer to Gladstone’s schools to promote healthy living as part of the inaugural Botanic to Bridge.

Chief executive Leo Zussino said the region’s schools had the chance to grab a slice of the $100,000 by ensuring they got as many of their students as possible to register for the event.

“The inaugural Botanic to Bridge is our way of encouraging school children and their parents to get out and get active,” Mr Zussino explained.

“For every school child that registers, their school will receive $10 towards healthy living

projects.

“We are also encouraging the parents of school-age children to sign up for the event as well. If they nominate the school where their child attends we will not only give their registration fee back to the school, but also give the school a further $5 per family member that registers.”

The inaugural Botanic to Bridge is set to take over Gladstone’s streets on Sunday, August 22.

The event is offering one of the largest cash prize pools for a walk/run event in Queensland with more than $20,000 in cash prizes.

Online registrations are now open at GPC’s Botanic to Bridge website, www.botanictobridge.com.au.
