Perfect day for a walk in the park
MORE than 130 walkers lined up on the banks of the Condamine River yesterday for the river walk to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland through the Warwick Great Strides Walkathon.
Walkers had options of 3.7km and 2.5km walks.
The event was organised by Peter von Stieglitz, who has cystic fibrosis, and his mother Clare, and raised more than $1000.
The walk was led by London Paralympics silver medallist Carlee Beattie and Redbacks Australian Rules captain Brendan Iles, a sport played by Peter.
Warwick student Holly Aspinall has cystic fibrosis, and drew some paintings for the day which her family hopes can raise more money for the cause.
