The first event of its kind on the east coast of Australia, the inaugural Gold Coast Ramble, being held on Sunday 26 March 2017, aims to raise funds and awareness for Rotary projects and local charities.  http://www.facebook.com/goldcoastramble
 
 
Organised by Gold Coast Rotary, Surfers Sunrise Rotary and the Griffith University Satellite Rotary Club in conjunction with the Gold Coast Community Fund , it is modelled off the highly successful Perth Ramble, organised by the Rotary Club of Mill Point, which recently raised more than $60,000 for charities.  Check out the photos above from Perth in 2015.
 
How does it work?
 
Think the Gold Coast version of the Amazing Race …  team up with families, friends and workmates to explore the city, uncover secret locations, solve puzzles and raise money for local charities.
 
Teams of costumed participants will explore the parks, malls and streets of the Gold Coast, following clues to locate 40 to 50 checkpoints over four hours (there is a two hour version with 20 checkpoints for young families).
 
At each checkpoint, the team use the Gold Coast Ramble App to download a challenge about the immediate area – this could relate to the heritage, the natural environment, street art or local infrastructure. Points are awarded for successful challenges with additional points available for donations to the Ramble's chosen charities.
