The Lane 4 Aquatics 2013 Sports and Health Expo was a great day out for over 2000 members of the Rockhampton Region who attended. There was something for everyone to enjoy with over 70 sites from local clubs, health service providers and organisations as well as free amusement rides and heaps of great demonstrations.

Organisers were extremely happy with the effort shown by all site holders to ensure the Expo provided an engaging opportunity for the community to learn more about what is available throughout the Region – well done to you all!

K-Man, the brand new KickStartCQ mascot, made his debut appearance at the Lane 4 Aquatics 2013 Sports and Health Expo. From all accounts he was well received, with people of all ages enjoying having a photo with him. Be sure to keep an eye out for K-Man, he will be out and about throughout the Region in the coming weeks.

Hundreds of giveaway bags were given out with heaps of handy information on developing a healthy lifestyle along with some great KickStartCQ promotional gear. Seven lucky members of the public who attended the Expo scored some great prizes after completing and entering their event passports. Thanks to Lane 4 Aquatics, The Edge Luxury Apartments, Athlete’s Foot Rockhampton, CrossFit CQ and CQMMA for donating the great prizes.

Organisers are starting preparations for next year’s Sports and Health Expo and look forward to the event continuing it’s consistent growth. For details on how to become involved click here or email sport@rrc.qld.gov.au.
