Our current fundraising initiative

There is not long to go before the third consecutive Ski for Life event kicks off on the 11th – 13th March, 2016.  Teams will be relay skiing 500kms from Murray Bridge to Renmark over the 5 days raising awareness and funds for the prevention of male suicide and depression.

Ski for Life is the grass roots fundraising component of the Australian Institute of Male Health & Studies.  Our fundraising is enabling us to set up Men’s Watch programs that empower participants with the skills to support and mentor our fellow men who are ‘doing it tough’ throughout rural and regional South Australia.

Thinking big, the initial group developed the concept of a 500km Ski Relay.  The Murray River was duly chosen as it would ensure targeting small rural communities where evidence shows that these are identified areas of need.

Local business’ and Service groups within your community are very generously supporting this event and it is this support that is ensuring the continuance of this event into the future.

We are thrilled to announce the support of StandBy Response who will be joining us for the duration of the event.  The Standby Response team responds to families, friends and associates who have been bereaved through suicide.

As people grieve in very different ways, StandBy can provide support and assistance whether it be immediately, weeks, months or years later.  They will be a valuable support to the communities along the duration of this year’s event and to the teams involved.  Standby service all of the South East, Riverland and Murraylands so it is a perfect collaboration for the future.

If you are one of the business’, Service Groups, Schools or sporting Committee’s that are supporting us, we thank you very much as ‘together we can make a difference’.

Should you wish to receive further information or can offer further support by way of donations or in-kind support, please do not hesitate to contact myself on either 0428 255122 or via email; suewatt13@bigpond.com.
