Nominate for Queens Baton Relay
The eyes of the Commonwealth will be on Airlie Beach, Bowen and Proserpine on 19 March 2018 as they play host the Queen’s Baton Relay.
Across Australia 3,800 bearers will carry the baton on its journey to the final destination, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) Opening Ceremony.
A Community Batonbearer Nomination Program will offer the people within the Whitsunday Region an opportunity to carry the Baton. Council is encouraging nominations for people who quietly contribute to a fun, friendly, vibrant and inclusive community or have made a significant contribution to sport, education, the arts or charity.
Setting off in Australia on 25 December 2017, the Baton will travel for 100 days to connect with as many people as possible in every state and territory.
From now until 15 May 2017, anyone can nominate a person who inspires them to be great. Nominations can be made at gc2018.com/qbr
