Every day nine Australians die by suicide. We will be walking nine laps to represent the nine lives lost to suicide each day. We’ll be walking, running and chatting to reflect and remember those lost to suicide.
Through open conversation, we can help to break down stigma and prevent suicide in our community. Come and join us for laps and a free BBQ in support of those affected by suicide in our community.
