POSTPONED

It's with sadness but a true sense of responsibility to all that we announce the Suicide Prevention And Awareness Walk planned for March 22 must be postponed due to the rapidly escalating Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will keep you up to date when we decide on a new date once this threat has gone away.

 

Dai Gum San Chinese Precinct

1-11 Bridge Street, Bendigo

Starts 11am.

The Bendigo Suicide Prevention and Awareness Walk on Sunday, March 22, allows people touched by suicide and those who want to show their support for them with a safe environment to remember loved ones, friends, work or school mates and to generate more public awareness of the issue of suicide in Bendigo and Central Victoria.

The Naked Farmer will be the guest speaker at this year's walk - telling the story of how a single photograph inspired a journey that has done much for mental health awareness across Australia.

To help us raise awareness of this important event please download our Bendigo Suicide Prevention and Awareness Walk 2020 flyer and share with people you think could benefit from attending: SPAN_Walk_2020_save_the_date_flyer.pdf
