Stadium Stomp Virtual will also support our amazing charity partner.
You can choose to fundraise for our charity partner, Black Dog Institute as part your challenge. In-fact, we encourage it.
Whilst fundraising is not mandatory, it is a fantastic way to make every step count and raise much-needed funds for mental health research.
Why fundraise for Black Dog Institute?
1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year. That’s more than 5 million people in Australia. The most common of these illnesses are anxiety and depression.
Unfortunately, less than half of all people in Australia experiencing the symptoms of mental illness will not seek professional help – often with tragic consequences. In fact, suicide is the leading cause of death in people in Australia aged 15-44 years. As a community, we need to come together to support those living with mental illness.
By supporting the Black Dog Institute in Stadium Stomp it’s your opportunity to show those living with mental illness that they’re not alone. Fundraising will support research into early detection, prevention and treatment of mental health disorders, as well as funding vital support services for those most at risk.
Together, we’re stomping in solidarity for people in Australia living with mental illness.
