On Saturday the 6th of March Body Science will again support the Walk The Walk event hosted by The Rise Foundation Australia. The walk is in support of suicide prevention. Nine individuals (7 male and 2 female representing the daily Australian suicide statistics) will walk for 24 hours around Sydney. Body Science co-owner Nathan Picklum and Marketing & Executive Assistant Sharon Vella will be partaking on the day.
The Rise Foundation and the Body Science team are encouraging anyone who would like to get involved to join us for any leg of the walk (see times and stops below).
- Starting at Jungle Bros Gym in Botany
- Stops at Maroubra and Bondi Beach, Indigo Cafe Double Bay, Circular Quay, Styne Hotel Manly, Bondi Beach and finishing at Maroubra Beach.
If you can’t be there on the day but would like to support the cause you can donate (ever $1 helps) at https://walk-the-walk.raisely.com. All money raised will go towards funding free mental health education courses for anyone in Australia.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44 and over 65,000 Australians make a suicide attempt each year
