The Little Ripper team lent its expertise to the Gold Coast Beach Parade launch at Burleigh Heads beach on April 16.
Gold Coast Beach Parade will be staged on May 16 and is a fun, new world record attempt that will raise money to save our koalas. Every participant’s entry fee to walk in the world record attempt will go directly to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation.
The Gold Coast community got their first ‘glimpse of the blimp’ Friday 16 April when ‘Burleigh’ the Baby Koala and ambassador for the Gold Coast Beach Parade took to the sky on Burleigh Beach.
With exactly a month to go to set the benchmark for a world record attempt at having the most people in a Beach Parade wearing specially designed koala ear visors, “Burleigh” will become a familiar sight in the community and an inspiration for people to join in the parade.
The event is destined to shine a tourism spotlight on the Gold Coast showcasing its enviable coastal lifestyle, spectacular beaches and safe and healthy environment for travellers.
