Manly, on Sydney's Northern Beaches, is the home each year to a walk that raises money and builds relationships with a community in Manado, Indonesia. This year, 500 people walked from The Spit to Manly Beach to raise money, but also to raise awareness about the importance of sanitation. This event had the lot: the giant toilet, toilet bowl headgear, a toilet-paper starting ribbon, Manly's longest toilet queue, poo cakes, and even remote-control poo!
