THE Queen's Baton Relay is coming through Noosa on Monday, March 26, and is a wonderful opportunity to support our community batonbearers as they run from Tewantin to Noosa Main Beach and share in the magic of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Mother and son duo Sue and Clinton Stanley are among the batonbearers and will run along Noosa Parade.
"For the love of sport, our community and being Aussie, we share in the dream of running with the Queen's Baton,” Mrs Stanley said.
