Athletes to speak to students about world poverty
Published on 10 July, 2012
A group of 18 athletes, who are relaying from Hervey Bay to Townsville, will speak to CQUniversity students and staff about making a difference to those living in extreme poverty throughout the world.
'The Run to Better Days' event is a 1200km run, in a relay format, along the Queensland coast from July 10 to 22. It aims to generate action towards the fight to end global poverty and raise money for Caritas Australia.
Along the way, the team will speak to people in schools, community organisations and universities about the difference they can make to the world's poorest people.
Two public lectures will be held at CQUniversity. The 3pm session will be held in Building 20/G.07 and the 6.15pm lecture will be held in the Cook Lecture Theatre on Tuesday, July 17.
