The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) has given the Wesley Mission’s Youth Hub Summer Olympians the fuel they need to compete for glory in the annual school holiday event on the Gold Coast.

RRT volunteers from Brisbane served up more than 150 signature beef burgers to keep the hungry young competitors firing on all cylinders as they faced off in a range of activities.

RRT Local Team Leader Stephen Taylor said the team was thrilled to be able to support a great event.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for kids to get out and have some fun with others during the school holidays, and the Rapid Relief Team is more than happy to help keep them well fed while they’re doing it,” Mr Taylor said.

“Seeing the smiles on their faces is all we need to keep the grill on, the burgers cooking and the drinks cold.

“It is our pleasure to be able to support the Wesley Mission’s Youth Hub Summer Olympics and we want to congratulate all those who took part in the fun-filled day.

“This is the 5th year the Rapid Relief Team has supported the event, and we are glad we can take care of the food so the kids can have fun and enjoy the day.
