It’s time to lace up your shoes, rally your mates and join the Walk For Awareness presented by Tessa Group on October 10 as the community comes together to raise awareness and funds for mental health.
On average, nine Australians lose their life everyday due to suicide. Join us for the 11th annual Walk For Awareness to participate in a 9 km walk to commemorate the lives lost each day due to mental health concerns.
Registrants can take part in the Brisbane event or attend the walk virtually for those across the country and beyond.
The Walk for Awareness breathes life and colour into the community, with the goal of showing those struggling with their mental health that they are not alone. Participants are encouraged to bring friends, family, school mates, colleagues and their pawed pals along for the journey, however solo walkers will not take the trek alone – the whole community will be behind them.
With a variety of exciting entertainment including live music and stilt walkers, everyone from kids in prams to grandparents will be amused all day long. Music lovers and mental health warriors can also feature in a music video with Australian Country Music Artist and Mental Awareness foundation Ambassador, Jade Holland shooting her new release, Fight For It; a song inspired by her own struggle with mental health, which will also be released publicly on the day.
You can join the walk and fundraise as a team or individual, to support specialised charities on the frontline of mental health support.
Registrations are open now for the physical or virtual event – head here to check out more information and to sign up.
