JOIN OUR FIGHT AGAINST BLOOD CANCER

Days to go

Skies The Limit With Bonza

The Far North Queensland community is gearing up for the 2024 Mackay Airport Twilight City Run.

The event will take place on 1 March 2024 and will raise much needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation’s local programs and support services.

More than $600,000 has been raised since the run began, a figure tipped to grow significantly in 2024 with a record number of participants expected.

Mackay Marina Run Event Director Tim Magoffin said the Mackay Airport Twilight City Run was an instrumental contributor to annual fundraising efforts.

“Currently, 53 people are diagnosed with blood cancer, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, every day in Australia, and this number is anticipated to nearly double by 2035,” he said.

All registrations in the 2024 Mackay Airport Twilight City Run will go in the draw to win one of three return Bonza flights for two to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast or Melbourne.

Mackay Airport Head of Operations Adrian Miles said the annual 5km fun run offered something for everyone.

“The Mackay Airport Twilight City Run is an excellent, family-friendly event that caters to all ages and abilities, bringing our community together in a fun, healthy way,” he said.

“We are thrilled to continue our support for this fantastic event, which promotes wellbeing and raises money for a vital cause, while also providing another excellent incentive for visitors to stay and play in our region.”

“Bonza has connected us directly to more destinations across Australia and it’s never been easier to plan a holiday here.”
