Anytime Fitness centres across Australia (including Lane Cove) is getting together to help raise awareness with their Tread Together Event.
Tread Together will bring together people from all across the country, moving as one to raise much-needed awareness of suicide and funds towards its prevention.
This national community event series will be held 3 pm Friday 25th May – 3 pm Saturday 26th May, and you don’t have to be a member of an Anytime Fitness club to take part, everyone is welcome.
You can get involved either as an individual or as a team, and can choose to run, walk, or even dance, for as little as 15 minutes, or for any length of time all the way up to the full 24 hours; it’s completely up to you.
Suicide in Australia takes 8 lives a day – 75% being young men. Most Australians will have been touched by the issue, and for the second year running Anytime Fitness is taking action.
Exercise has an immensely positive effect on mental health, it’s something Anytime Fitness is passionate about telling the nation. Anytime Fitness wants to raise awareness for suicide prevention and show everyone our welcoming community.
All money raised will be donated to Suicide Prevention Australia.
Suicide Prevention Australia provides national leadership for the suicide prevention sector in Australia. SPA works collaboratively to develop a community that knows how to ask for help and how to give help.
They build and facilitate partnerships to change behaviours and attitudes to suicide prevention, and to amplify the voices of people with lived experience of suicide. We are honoured to draw upon the knowledge and wisdom of the national Lived Experience Network and are particularly grateful to lived experience advisors from across the country who work with us to amplify these voices.
Last year Anytime Fitness Australia raised $390 000.
