This Friday the tiniest starlets at the Cooly Rocks On Festival will put on a marathon effort for sick kids.
Twelve colourful Goggomobils will spend four hours taking kids from TLC for Kids, the local hospitals and the Mudgeeraba Special School for rides around the Coolangatta precinct.
The Goggonutters Group and their colourful Goggomobil cars will make about 200 laps of the circuit, stopping every round to reload with new kids.

Gold Coast Goggonutter Howard Knox said last year’s inaugural charity Goggo car cruise for special kids delivered 150 rides, attracting messages of praise and congratulations from all over Australia. “People thought it was a great idea. We also enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to do it all again for these special children,’’ he said. “The best thing was seeing the smiles that light up the kids’ faces. It’s priceless.’’
Connecting Southern Gold Coast CEO Peter Doggett encouraged visitors to get into the spirit of the event. “Logistically, it will be a massive effort by the Goggonutters and all involved to accommodate so many children with rides through the Cooly Rocks On precinct,’’ said Mr Doggett. “We hope everyone gets into the spirit of the event and waves and cheers these kids on as they drive through town with their chauffeurs.”
The second annual Goggo cruise takes place between 10am and 2pm on Friday 9 June, commencing in Marine Parade and making a circuit that travels along Dixon, Griffith and McLean Streets. The charity cruise is one of the highlights of Cooly Rocks On. For the full Cooly Rocks On program, visit coolyrockson.com
