Why Was Schapelle Corby On The Run In Brisbane?
It's one of Queensland's largest charity runs of the year, and convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby was among those who crossed the finish line at the Sunday Mail's Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run.
The 41-year-old completed the 10km course in 1 hour 47 minutes, and raised more than $1200 for Suicide Prevention Australia.
"Walk, jog, walk, jog," she said. "It’s just spitting slightly, our clothes are a little bit damp but we’re not wet."
Earlier this month, Corby had urged her 182,000 Instagram followers for donations to the worthy cause.
"Share the #love, give back to #community If we could all donate $2-$3 just a few dollars we may help save a life," she wrote. "Life is worth living. Lets do this."
