TIME is running out if you want to get involved in next month’s Meet and Greet Bowls Day Fundraiser.
Hervey Bay local Chris Wicks is raising money for Variety: The children’s charity.
Variety supports Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or living with a disability so that they can unleash their full potential.
Chris will take part in the 2022 Yamaha Variety Jet Trek from Mackay to Port Douglas in March.
The epic jet ski event, held over seven days, is around 800km in total.
To help reach his fundraising targets, Chris is hosting a fun bowls day at Urangan Bowls Club on Friday, 22 October 2021.
Entries for the fun bowls day need to be in by 24 September so catering can be finalised and all event shirts made.

Chris said the response to the event has been great so far but there are still a few spots available.
“Heaps of locals on the Fraser Coast are helping support this great event,” he said.
Several team entries have come in in the last few days so the event is gearing up to be a festive one.
All money raised by the bowls day will go towards Chris’ 2022 Yamaha Jet Trek fundraising campaign.
He said he was hopeful a strong turnout from Fraser Coast locals at next month’s event would encourage organisers to stop over in Hervey Bay for a night or two during future treks.
Chris said around 120 jet ski riders and their support teams stopping over on the Fraser Coast would have a positive financial impact on the local economy.
Meanwhile, Chris said his own preparation ahead of the grueling 798km trek was going well.
