Where the funds are going

All proceeds go to improving mental health services and providing specialised exercise programs for mental health patients in the Loddon Mallee region. These services are delivered by Bendigo Health, a leading regional health service, with around 4,000 staff and a catchment area covering a quarter of the size of Victoria.

What is Move for Mental Health?

Coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Month and World Mental Health Day, 2021 Move for Mental Health is a virtual fitness and fundraising challenge for all abilities.

You can choose to walk, run, wheel, cycle or even CrossFit your way through our month-long challenge. Simply register, set your fitness and fundraising goals and share your progress online to encourage support and donations from your social network.

Register as an individual, a family or rally your work colleagues or friends to create a team. You can start working towards your fitness and fundraising goals as soon as you sign up. You may wish to walk each day, take regular exercise classes or cycle 50km a week, the choice is yours.
