Sporting bodies urged to unite
LOCAL sporting bodies now have the opportunity to help each other thanks to a new initiative in the region.
The Airlie Beach Combined Clubs is a group driven by local not-for-profit sporting clubs of the Whitsundays who are working to support one-another, share resources to strengthen the community’s local participation and further contribute to tourism promotion.
“Our small not-for-profit clubs are responsible for bringing huge events to Airlie Beach every year, including the Whitsunday Running Festival, BMX Carnivals, Scout Fest, the Airlie Beach Triathlon and much more,” Airlie Beach Combined Club’s representative Chris Labes said.
“So far the running club, triathlon club, mountain bike club, lifesaving club, AFL juniors, BMX club and scout club are working together and are grateful for the interest shown by Whitsundays Marketing and Development.”
The initiative is open to any not-for-profit club, and Labes encourages those interested to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
