Million Paws for a Cause!
Forty years ago the Rolling Stones extolled the virtues of "Walking the dog" in song. These days the health benefits of doing just that are being promoted all over Australia.
Every year, rain or shine, thousands of animals head to parks all over Australia and participate in the RSPCA's annual Million Paws Walk. Apart from being a vital part of the charity's fundraising, the Million Paws Walk is a great way to get healthy and have a fantastic time doing it. This year there are 19 venues throughout Queensland and every venue will have all sorts of activities, displays and competitions. Plus there will be food and drink for the whole family-including the family pooch!
RSPCA Qld has annual operating costs of just under $27 million and the Million Paws Walk is the biggest fundraising event of the year. Last year over 42,000 animals passed through RSPCA Queensland shelters and financially, without the Million Paws Walk, we simply couldn't cope.
Walkers are encouraged to set up their own online fundraising page to help raise even more funds for RSPCA Qld. Simply follow the links to 'FUNDRAISE' once you have registered online for your local walk. But don't forget, even if you don't have a pet, you can still come along for the walk...and the fun!
Want more? Kids can enter kids corner complete with jumping castle, and there are great dog agility performances to watch throughout the day.
