The Gold Industry Group is proud to support LIVIN and will be participating in their LIVIN Big Challenge fun run/walk around Lake Monger on Sunday 18 March at 8.30am.
Join the Gold Industry Group team to help us demystify the stigma attached to mental illness and shout it out that 'It Ain’t Weak to Speak' at the LIVIN Big Challenge fun run. We welcome friends and family to join our team!
You can choose from three course lengths depending on how much you want to push your limits! Stick around after the run to enjoy the festival atmosphere, grab a bite to eat and have a chat with others who are equally as passionate about the work that LIVIN do.
This is a family friendly event. Children 12 years and under are invited to participate free of charge but must register and be accompanied by an adult with a paid registration.
Ticket options include:
1 LAP - 3.5km walk or run
2 LAPS - 7km walk or run
3 LAPS - 10.5km runners only
About the partnership
The Gold Industry Group partnered with mental health not-for-profit LIVIN in 2017, to raise awareness of mental health and change the way the industry and society understands, perceives and interprets mental illness.
In June 2017, the Gold Industry Group held member and community workshops in Perth and Kalgoorlie with LIVIN founders Sam Webb and Casey Lyons, to help demystify the stigma attached to mental illness and give people the basic tools to seek help and help others. We also collaborated with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, LIVIN and the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Youth Council to produce a short film launched at Mental Health Week WA Opening Ceremony in Kalgoorlie.
