Million Paws Walk 2023
Grab your pooch, pop on your sneakers and help raise money for animals in need.
May 23, 2023
If you're a dog person, being surrounded by wagging tails and beaming pooch faces is one of the happiest feelings in the world. Here's another: doing your part to assist animals in need. Each year — a pandemic hiatus aside — the RSPCA's Million Paws Walk combines the two, asking Brisbanites and their puppers to go for a stroll to help raise funds for an obviously extremely worth cause.
Come Sunday, May 28, this endorphin-sparking mosey returns for 2023, taking over the Forgan Smith Lawn at the University of Queensland in St Lucia. Whether you're keen to dress up for the occasion — in a matching outfit to your four-legged bestie, of course — or just pop on your sneakers and usual workout attire, then join in from 10am (with registrations from 8.30am).
Entry costs $35 for adults and $30 for concessions, with the money raised going towards RSPCA Queensland's work rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals.
In addition to the exercise, you and Rover can browse a heap stalls afterwards, listen to live tunes and grab a bite to eat from food trucks. There's also dog competitions and games as well.
