10th Annual Walk for Awareness
Sunday, 11th October 2020
About The Event
The morning will begin with an inspiring opening ceremony, where we remember those lost to depression and mental illness and honour those continuing the battle. Join us for a quick warm up and stretch, walkers will take off on an 8km walk in your local area and at the physical event around Brisbane’s winding river and beautiful scenery.
We encourage you to participate in this event anywhere in Australia and when taking on the walk in your area we encourage you to include some iconic and capture these and share with the Walk for Awareness community and show the amazing impact you’ve just made in the quest to raise awareness of depression and mental illness.
Walk for Awareness is an event that involves bringing people together in a friendly environment where the issues of mental health can be discussed openly with friends, family and supportive strangers. We believe the matters surrounding suicide should be discussed, not hidden.
