Port to Park calls for a Community Beneficiary

Local community groups are being given a chance to apply as the community beneficiary for Gladstone Ports Corporation’s (GPC) new-look fund run, Port to Park 2021.

The community beneficiary funding will go towards helping one worthy group with their community project or initiative.

Executive General Manager for People and Community, Rowen Winsor said GPC’s FunD run initiative has been running for more than a decade.

“The community beneficiary is quite special this year because it will be the first to kick-off our new-look fun run,” Ms Winsor said.

“We know, now more than ever, local groups would really appreciate this funding and will put it to good use to support our community after enduring one of the most challenging years’ due to COVID-19,” she said.

“Port to Park is such a great way to raise our community spirit, help those who need it most and support our local schools and of course, to get active and have fun doing it!”

Previous Community Beneficiaries of GPC’s FunD run initiative, previously known as the Botanic to Bridge, have included the Gladstone Hospital Children’s Ward through Give Me 5 for Kids, Roseberry House, the Gladstone PCYC and the Boyne Island Environmental Educational Centre.

All proceeds from the Port to Park fund run event go back into the local community including helping primary and secondary schools with new sporting and outdoor equipment.

Port to Park also includes two new course routes which showcase GPC’s waterfront parklands.

Beneficiary applications close at 4pm on Friday 4 June.
