In 2014, 2015 and 2016, the CoWALKERS participated in a walking event to raise funds for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Over those three years, thanks to our many corporate sponsors and supporters the CoWALKERS team raised an incredible $87,000.
This year the team has decided to raise funds for another worthy cause “mental health”. Mental illness will impact one in five of the population. Certain industries including the construction industry has high rates on mental illness.
So at some stage we will all be touched by what Winston Churchill called his “Black Dog”. The team will in 2017 be raising funds for SANE AUSTRALIA a national mental health charity. Attached to this letter is a flyer which details the great work SANE undertakes.
A team of CoWALKERS will take on and defeat a 25Km walk to be held on Saturday 18 November 2017.
To help support our team of 17 (and growing) CoWALKERS, we are seeking generous donations from our corporate and other friends to sponsor the team.
As has been done for our past events, our team will design a shirt containing the logos of our major sponsors that they will wear on their training sessions and on the event day.
To support this great cause, we would be grateful for a donation. With SANE we have developed a Fund WEB page raising which you can log into and donated directly.
