LCGS Walkathon 2018

Each year, grade 12 students from Launceston Church Grammar School undertake an 80km walkathon to raise money and awareness for charity. This year, the Grade 12 cohort has chosen to support Tasmania charity, SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY.

SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY is a registered not-for-profit charity that works to promote positive mental health and prevent suicide by normalising conversations about mental health and encouraging people to seek help when they need it.

Mitch McPherson established the organisation in 2013 after his younger brother Ty died by suicide. Mitch shares his personal story of loss to encourage others to speak up and seek help when they have issues or go through difficult times.

Mitch and his team organise community events, fundraisers and presentations to community groups, workplaces, sporting clubs and schools to promote the SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY message.

The team works hard throughout Tasmania and Australia to raise awareness about mental health and suicide, and share that it’s OK to not be OK, where to find help, and how we can help each other out in tough times.

The grade 12's will be starting their walk on Wednesday the 28th of March and would hugely appreciate any donations, no matter how big or small.
