This Is Why Thousands Of Locals Were Abseiling At The Stadium
All for a good cause!
It was a busy Saturday at Queensland Country Bank Stadium and it had nothing to do with footy.
Over 1,300 locals braved the heights of our Townsville icon to support a great cause, while abseiling around 30 metres.
All funds raised (over $50,000!) will support the work of the Brighter Lives Townsville Hospital Foundation.
The phenomenal efforts were so great that a world record was broken! It was previously held by England boasting 1,350 people abseiling off a stadium in a 12 hour window, but 1,372 is the new record held by Townsville!
