The National Foundation; focused on raising funds for rural Australia
Walk N Talk for Life
The Foundation supports Walk N Talk for Life by providing initial and ongoing funding to help establish new chapters throughout Australia’s rural towns.
This program is currently being launched in many rural communities, and is designed to suit Australia’s men and women. Physical movement, exercise and psychotherapy are great for mental health, so this program aims to raise $250,000 to rollout Walk n Talk for Life across 10 rural towns in 2019
- People join Walk N Talk for Life and enjoy meeting, walking and talking with many people in their own towns and simply share the challenges of their sometimes stressful daily lives. Participants report increases in their well-being, improved and renewed friendships and solutions to many of their problems.
- Walk n Talk For Life Manly started in February 2016 with 200 people walking from Queenscliff Lagoon to Shelly Beach and back, each wearing their yellow t-shirts and caps. Everyone then gathered for a free sausage sizzle and drink … and so the community was created.
- Participants are reminded that many experience similar things. Not everyone is depressed or suicidal, but everyone is human and life’s challenges are real and universal. For some; these struggles can become overwhelming, which often leads to separation and loneliness. By gathering together they realize they are not alone and this creates an environment where there is always someone there for you … to listen, hug, cry with, to chat … yet most importantly; to feel connected to … by simply walking and talking together.
- As each Chapter is launched, we will provide the contacts for you to also become a participant.
