By Micaela Aboody

When thinking of the Gold Coast surfing may come to mind however, the Men of Business Academy (MOB) will be doing their 3rd annual 24 hour Paddle Fundraiser.

Founder and CEO of Men of Business, Marco, explains the MOB started 10 years ago with fitness and mentoring programs.

“The last 2 years the ability to become a registered school and offer the boys a QCE and an education pathway, trade pathway and job pathways, has been amazing,” he said.

This year they are fundraising for a driving school to become a part of their program to help students become prepared for life, as having a drivers license is an advantage when looking for jobs.

They already have 15 teams of local businesses registered who will be doing a 5km loop of Isle of Capri for 24 hours.
