Anitta Stallwood’s brave bid to raise awareness about spina bifida and hydrocephaly attracted about 125 walkers, runners – and a few dogs – to the South Burnett Rail Trail on Sunday morning.
Walkers were encouraged to wear onesies and / or beanies, but southburnett.com.au spotted a few outfits that were most likely PJs!
There were also walkers in high-vis, families pushing strollers, a couple of wheelchairs and a bunch of students from Kingaroy State High School.
There was fresh coffee to enjoy and face-painting while Kingaroy Rotary members were kept busy cooking up breakfast.
After a warm-up session led by Anitta, the walkers took off from the Youngman Street, Kingaroy, entrance towards the Meiers Road intersection.
The inaugural “SBH Qld Wheel & Walk In The Roy” was a fundraiser for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Qld.
As promised, Anitta did break out her onesie, a surprise for the walkers when they came back to Kingaroy!
