Runner on mission

RENOWNED marathon runner and Botanic to Bridge ambassador Tristan Miller met with the beneficiaries of the popular local event yesterday for lunch.

The lunch was held at the Mission to Seafarers' premises.

The organisation and Gladstone Region Special Olympics will receive the funds raised from the August 19 event.

Honorio Hincapie, the chaplain for Mission to Seafarers, said Tristan's visit had left him even more excited about the upcoming event.

"I was only going to walk, but his words of motivation have persuaded me to run," Mr Hincapie said.

Debbie Knust, from Special Olympics, said Tristan was a great ambassador for the event.
