“ABOUT THE WALK”
Originally the Rotary Club of Mooloolaba together with a number of other Rotary Clubs on the Sunshine Coast has for the past three years, staged a WALK FOR MENTAL HEALTH in October to coincide with Queensland Mental Health Month.
The “point of difference” is that the walk is not a race. It is a family occasion offering an organised “fun” walk from Mooloolaba to Maroochydore and back. Walkers have the option to turn around at any time.
The inaugural Walk was held in October 2016 and has grown to include hundreds of participants and raised almost $35,000 so far.
This year our exciting new look LIFT THE LID WALK for Mental Health will be held in many community locations across Australia.
Our target this year given COVID management is to aim for 450 walkers at each event and raise more than $10,000 funds for vital Mental Health Research along the way.
This is a great project because it:
1. Raises much-needed funds for ARH Mental Health Research
2. Offers an opportunity for the community to identify with those suffering from mental health issues.
3. It provides an outlet for those suffering from mental health issues. For example, every year there have been families and friends wearing their own special t-shirts honouring a loved one who has been lost as a result of a mental health issue.
4 Will bring visitors to Bribie Island which is good for local businesses and tourism.
