The LIFT THE LID WALK for Mental Health will get you walking and get us all talking while raising vital funds for Australian Rotary Health.

The Rotary Club of Sorrento aims to have a number of other Rotary Clubs in the District stage a WALK FOR MENTAL HEALTH in October of each year to coincide with Victoria’s Mental Health Month.

The “point of difference” is that the walk is not a race. It is a family occasion offering an organised “fun” walk in the Point Nepean National Park.  Walkers have the option to turn around at any time.

The inaugural Walk was to be held in October 2020 however due to COVID-19 restrictions the date has been moved to 28th February 2021. Our target this year given COVID management is 350 walkers and more than $10,000 funds to be raised for Mental Health Research.

This is a great project because it:

1.  Raises much-needed funds for ARH Mental Health Research
2.  Offers an opportunity for the community to identify with those suffering from mental health issues.
3.  It provides an outlet for those suffering from mental health issues. For example, every year there have been families and friends wearing their own special t-shirts honouring a loved one who has been lost as a result of a mental health issue.
4   Will bring visitors to Portsea, Sorrento and the Southern Peninsula area in general, which is good for local businesses and tourism.
