Walking to help Lift The Lid

Posted: 8am 13 Nov 2020

Rotary Clubs from Kippa-Ring, North Lakes and Pine Rivers will come together on November 15 for the first Lift The Lid Walk for Mental Health.

The walk, at Lake Eden in North Lakes, will be the first in a new series hosted by Australian Rotary Health (ARH) and Rotary District clubs around the country.

A walk has also been confirmed at Bribie Island on November 22, with dates to be announced for Mackay, Rockhampton, Woolloongabba, and Cairns.

Walk and talk

The walk and talk format is a chance to get local people together to raise awareness of the serious mental health issues in our communities, schools, homes and workplaces.

“We are thrilled to be launching this wonderful initiative,” Lift the Lid Walk event manager Colleen Caruana from Kippa-Ring/North Lakes Rotary Club, said.

“We are passionate about it and early sponsorship support from our local business community has been overwhelming.”

Vital role

The original Walk For Mental Health format was the brainchild of Vicki Stewart, a Past President and long-time member of the Rotary Club of Mooloolaba.

"Vicki wanted to raise funds for mental illness research and the vital role it plays in understanding and treating complex mental health issues," says Paul Robins, past President of Mooloolaba Rotary and Chairman of the Steering Committee.

"After four years raising more than $35,000 for Australian Rotary Health, we are delighted to share its evolution in 2020 into the Lift the Lid Walk for Mental Health.”

The inaugural Lift The Lid Walk starts at 8am from Lake Eden, North Lakes. Entry fee $30.
