let's Walk for mental health research
Rotarians and Rotaractors from across WA will come together with the local Maylands community on our Rotary Action Day. This will be our first state-wide LIFT THE LID WALK for Mental Health. This event is co-hosted by Rotary WA, your ARH WA team, and the new Maylands Rotary.
The Rise Maylands (28 Eighth Avenue, Maylands WA) and surrounds
Who: Everyone who has been impacted by or cares about Mental Health.
Get your teams together now to support world-class ARH research.
These walks are a great way to spread awareness of the 1 in 5 Australians across our local communities who currently experience some form of mental illness, and the 1 in 2 who may do so in their lifetime. Help us Lift the Lid on Mental Illness this autumn by walking with us!
Proceeds help fund crucial pre-teen health research!
A Walk NOT a race. It is a family-friendly occasion offering an organised “fun” event, the chance to chat, get some exercise and fresh air! Enjoy a quiet suburban/residential walk, and talk with others about mental and physical health.
Given widespread anticipated interest, walkers will be able to choose from two options down to the Swan River and back:
Afterwards, visit Delivering Hope, an interactive expo of Rotary programs, and then explore Maylands town centre.
Please note: These walks will take place on public footpaths in low traffic areas around residential streets and parks. Regrettably, these particular walks may not be suitable for those with serious mobility challenges.
Adults $30 contribution to pre-teen mental health research (includes cap or t-shirt by order). Kids under 15 walk FREE. (NB: contributions are non-refundable.)
Enter yourself, or your family, club, organisation or work team.
