MEC warms up for Bridge to Brisbane 2018

Some of our spritely MEC Mining team members have begun training for the Sunday Mail Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run in August this year.

Celebrating its 22nd year in 2018, the run has become one of Brisbane’s best-loved events for people from all walks of life. MEC runners will join thousands of competitors on the 10km or 5km courses, which take in some of our city’s iconic landmarks, including jogging over Story Bridge and through the beautiful South Bank Parklands.

Aside from being good, healthy fun, the Bridge to Brisbane is also about giving back to the wider community via fundraising.

“It’s always a great event, and MEC’s runners are raring to go!” says Maria Joyce, our General Manager –Strategy and Business Development. Maria and the team (“Not Fast, Just Furious”) will be raising funds for The Australian Indigenous Education Foundation – a non-profit organisation that provides scholarships for Indigenous students to attend boarding schools and residential university colleges and offers intensive career support.
