Walk organiser Anitta Stallwood gets a good luck lick from Mimi, dressed in a matching “pupsie” to Ngareta Day’s “onesie”

July 26, 2021

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!

UPDATE September 9: Anitta says the walk raised more than $7000.
