Having fun running

KINGAROY'S Go Getta Girls brought the Mother's Day Classic Fun Run to the South Burnett for the first time on the weekend.

Go Getta Girls president Jo Sellick said strong support of the event, which is held in 51 cities and towns across Australia, will see it held biannually in the South Burnett.

"It was fantastic to see so many families supporting the event and to see so many people wearing pink in support of breast cancer," Mrs Sellick said.

"The local community showed overwhelming support enjoying a lovely family morning.

"The event was great, ran smoothly and very successful."

Mrs Sellick said the Mother's Day Classic raises money for breast cancer both through participation and also merchandise.

"We had 282 participants at the South Burnett event and we ended up raising $5000 for breast cancer research," she said.

"It was lovely to see so many people there in pink.

"The famous Go Getta Girls tutus sold out in a rush and proved popular even with the male participants."
