Mackay Marina Run and Harbour Beach clean

20 June 2019

Through its joint venture BMA, Mitsubishi Development has been proudly sponsoring the annual BMA Mackay Marina Run since it started in 2009.

Raising funds for much-needed support and research for the Leukemia Foundation, the BMA Mackay Maria Run continues to attract greater participant numbers every year. The event showcases the spectacular features of the tropical coastal city and celebrates the role that fun and fitness has in the community.

On 2 June 2019, BMA celebrated its 11th year of sponsorship of this event and was proud to have more than 130 employees and family members take part in the various running events. Volunteers worked hard in the BMA Recovery Tent and throughout the whole event precinct, providing helpful hands to sizzle sausages and distribute fruit and water for all participants.

In addition to the run itself, Mitsubishi Development also arranged a beach clean at Harbour Beach and Mulherin Park, as part of Clean Up Australia.

To show our contribution to society and the environment, Mitsubishi Development employees participated in a beach clean together with resident BMA staff and their families.

As a result of our efforts, we were able to collect and remove around 120kg of general rubbish, abandoned tyres, and hazardous chemicals/petroleum products, as well as report abandoned furniture and scrap material to the local Council for collection.

Mitsubishi Development is committed to helping deliver lasting environmental change and social contribution and intends to conduct annual business Clean Up Australia events within its local communities going forward.
