Our 2022 Lift the Lid Walk for Mental Health was held on Sunday 20 March.
This year, we dramatically increased the stakes – the St Kilda Football Club have just opened the Danny Frawley Centre at their headquarters in Moorabbin, promoting health and wellness. MASH and Australian Rotary Health (ARH) have agreed to fund a Danny Frawley mental health scholarship at a Victorian University over the next 3 years.
The walk was held in beautiful sunny conditions at the Gardiners Creek Reserve in Burwood. After words of encouragement from our MC Greg Ross and Gladys Liu (Federal Member for Chisholm) and Dr Daryl Moran (our District Governor) the walkers headed off for laps of the park. Along the way they had a handball comp, marking comp, quiz and bubble fun. Many thanks to all Rotarians and friends who assisted (both MASH and Balwyn). Also thanks to our enthusiastic helpers from Rotaract and Interact.
Also thanks to the St Kilda Footy Club for running a footy clinic with current players Nick Coffield and Hunter Clark.
Finally a big thankyou to our sponsors:
Planning is well advanced for the 2023 walk to be held on Sunday 26 February 2023. The Danny Frawley Centre and St Kilda Footy Club will again be involved. The 2023 walk will include a new element being a competition between local sports clubs to see who can register the greatest number of participants. The winning club will receive $2,000.
