11 Aug Dust Off Your Runners And Get Ready For GPC’s Port To Park
The clock is ticking with the much-loved local event just around the corner and the Gladstone Region is gearing up for Sunday, August 21!
The event isn’t just a favourite for keen runners but it also supports schools and one lucky community beneficiary.
Money raised from the event lends a helping hand to 27 local schools with funding to assist them with various health and wellbeing initiatives such as purchasing new sporting equipment or funding breakfast clubs.
Port to Park also raises awareness for important causes in the community.
This year, the Port to Park Community Beneficiary, is a local group, ‘Choice Passion Life’ and will be awarded with a $20,000 grant to go towards their Mylestones Solutions Garden Crew.
People with disability represent one in five Australians and CPL’s Corporate and Community Partnerships Manager, Pete Breuer, said the funding will provide significant assistance to their Mylestones Solutions Garden Crew.
“We are excited to be this year’s Port to Park Community Beneficiary,” Mr Breuersaid.
“Receiving $20,000 towards our Mylestones Solutions Garden Crew means we can better strengthen our gardening maintenance service in the region and ultimately provide ongoing employment opportunities for locals living with disability,” he said.
CPL will be handed a cheque on race day and the community beneficiary donation will go towards new equipment to expand and grow CPL’s services, which in turn will ultimately provide more access to employment, skill development and career pathway opportunities for more people with disability.
Port to Park encourages the entire community to get out and get active with a focus on community health and wellbeing.
There’s just over a week to go and Gladstone Ports Corporation is calling for the entire region to register and lace up for Port to Park 2022 by visiting www.gpcl.com.au.
