Lift the Lid Walk on Mental Health
From: Thursday October 1, 2020, 12:00 am
To: Saturday October 31, 2020, 12:00 am
During the month of October – Mental Health Month - Hampton Rotary Club members will be walking as part of Australian Rotary Health’s Lift The Lid on Mental Health to raise funds for vital Youth Mental Health Research.
Did you know that over 75% of mental health problems occur before the age of 25? Australian Rotary Health funds research to make sure youth mental health programs and interventions are effective and safe for the community to use.
At this time of increasing anxiety and mental health illness arising from the COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, now more than ever before mental health research is vital to help save lives.
The “Lift The Lid Walk for Mental Health “raises much needed funds for mental health research by Australian Rotary Health (ARH). Funded almost exclusively by Rotary Clubs and Rotarians around Australia, ARH are one of the largest independent mental health research funders, having contributed more than $36million to Mental Health Research over the years.
Our Club members have set a goal of covering 2,000,000 steps during October by walking the streets of our local area to raise $5,000 for Youth Mental Health Research. We’ll be putting on our walking shoes, hitting the streets and clocking up the steps for this very worthy cause.
All donations from our fundraising for this Walkathon will go directly to funding research into Youth Mental Health through Australian Rotary Health.
