Your chance to squat against a toilet cut-out

QUEENSLAND Urban Utilities is encouraging Ipswich to get behind its inaugural World Toilet Day challenge, 'How long can you hold on?'

Not that they're asking anyone to hold their bladders, but the challenge is a wall squat fitness challenge with a toilet twist.

QUU spokesperson Michelle Cull said entrants had to assume a wall-sit position and whoever held on the longest would win.

"Participants will squat against a toilet cut-out, alongside a toilet brush," she said.

"We'll also have personal trainers there to make sure people are keeping a leg-burning 90 degree angle.

"The winner will take home a Bunnings voucher and the coveted golden toilet trophy. There'll also be a free barbecue breakfast."

Ms Cull said money raised would go to WaterAid Australia to help the world's poorest communities improve sanitation.

"For 2.3 billion people worldwide, having no access to a safe toilet is a daily reality. That's why we're really encouraging Ipswich businesses, sports clubs, schools and the public to enter a team and take our World Toilet Day challenge," she said.

The fundraiser will be held at 7.30am on November 19, at Alan Cumming Park, North Ipswich.
