Get the runners out, start Botanic to Bridge training

REGISTRATIONS have opened for this year's Gladstone Ports Corporation hosted sixth annual Botanic to Bridge, to be held on Sunday, August 16.

The event last year received a capacity field, and organisers are urging people who wish to take part to register early to avoid disappointment.

Register online before June 30 to receive early-bird pricing, saving up to five dollars on registration prices.

All registrations fees are invested back into the region through local schools and a community beneficiary.

Community organisations have an opportunity to receive substantial funding through the B2B community beneficiary process.

Applications will close on June 19 and can be accessed through the Botanic to Bridge website.

GPC chief executive officer Craig Doyle said the event was not only a great way to spend an active day out with the family, it was also an opportunity to show your support for the local community.

"Over the past five years, Botanic to Bridge has donated over $200,000 to community groups and local schools in the Gladstone region to assist with education, health and well-being programs and initiatives," he said.

"The event provides significant financial support to important community organisations and I encourage these groups to take advantage of this unique opportunity and submit a beneficiary application for this year's event."

In 2014, the Gladstone Community Hub received a $20,000 donation.
