A torch relay arrives in Mackay today, marking 100 years of legacy.
The Legacy Centenary Torch Relay will take place at Mackay Town Hall, with the torch travelling 50,000 kilometres over 75 days between Cairns and the Gold Coast.
The relay will begin at Mackay Town Hall and travel a distance of 7.1km to the Mackay Regional Council.
Eric Easterbrook OAM, Chairman of Legacy Australia, says the relay aims to raise awareness and support for veterans in local communities.
“Over the decades, Legacy has had a significant impact on many spouses, partners and children of veterans in the state of Queensland. From Cairns to the Gold Coast and everywhere in between, we hope this relay will raise awareness of the important work Legacy does across the sunshine state in supporting our veterans’ families,” he says.
To date torch bearers have raised $130,000 for Legacy.
