Are you ready to ramble?
How well do you know the Gold Coast? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get a team of family, friends or workmates together and get ready to explore the Gold Coast, uncover secret locations and solve puzzles, all the while raising money for charity.

The Rotary Club is staging its inaugural Gold Coast Ramble for Charity on Sunday, 26th March 2017. A cross between a treasure hunt and "The Amazing Race, you will follow clues to locate 40 to 50 checkpoints over a 4 hour period. (For families with younger children, there will be a 2 hour event with 20 checkpoints.) At each checkpoint you will use the Gold Coast Ramble App to download a challenge relating to the immediate area this could relate to the heritage, the natural environment, street art or current infrastructure.

Registrations are now open so get your team together.

This is a team event with a captain and between one and five additional team members. Remember, the bigger the team the more brain power and fun you will have. You can register a team and add team members later. Don't forget to organise your costumes too and the on the day make sure your captain brings a fully-charged mobile phone.

The 4-hour Ramble costs $30 per team member. Students and holders of pension concession cards are entitled to a 50% discount. The 2-hour Ramble is suited to families with younger children or teams with less mobile members and costs $15 per team member. There are no further discounts but children under 5 are free.

Your team is encouraged to support one of the following charities through seeking sponsorship donations. The incentive being that each donation will earn additional event points every $10 donation gains the team an additional point up to a maximum of 50 points ($500 team sponsorship).

Using Everyday Hero, team members will be able to get their friends and work colleagues to sponsor their team.
