SAY HELLO TO OUR FUNDRAISERS!
Since the beginning of our journey we have been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm to 'do something' shown by our local community.
We thoroughly believe campaigns like the Maccas project are vital. If we stand up and defend young people with mental health problems we can beat the stigma and by doing this we help reduce suicide in our community.
Suicide is a major issue for society and every suicide affects families, friends and colleagues. Our timeline celebrates all those people who have run, rode, swam, printed, sponsored, eaten, dressed up, all in the name of raising awareness and for that we thank you.
