Everyone’s favourite FunD run Botanic to Bridge (B2B) is taking the year off in 2020 but don’t put the running shoes away just yet, Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) is hosting a huge fitness initiative ‘Active August’.
GPC's Active August event embraces healthy lifestyles and community spirit while still financially supporting local schools and a community beneficiary.

There will be four weekly challenges in total including:
Week One Challenge: Get Active in our Parklands
Week Two Challenge: Dance Challenge
