Of every 30 students in Australia, seven will be dealing with a mental health issue, yet only two will reach out for support, leaving five suffering in silence. Sadly, most young people dealing with mental health issues do not reach out for help, largely due to stigma.
This year we have a big focus on encouraging people to 'take charge' of their health, fitness and wellbeing, and are excited to be doing this through the City2Surf!
Not only are we aiming to improve our own, and others health and wellbeing through this, we're aiming to raise $100,000 which will allow 5,000 young people to experience a batyr@school program, and ensure they are engaged in positive conversations about mental health, and empowered to reach out for support when needed.
Want to step up the challenge?
If you commit to raising $500 for batyr, you can apply to be one of our Superstar runners. You’ll get a free entry, a start in the special start wave, a personalised bib and special edition finisher’s medal, plus more. You'll have to be quick though, as there are limited places & it's first in best dressed - SIGN UP HERE - https://fairfaxconsole.com.au/city2surf2019/batyr/request?utm_source=batyr_SURF&utm_medium=MREC/
