Anytime Fitness Blaxland, working directly with Anytime Fitness Springwood and alongside many Anytime Fitness facilities across the country, are hosting a 24 hour Treadmill Challenge on behalf of Suicide Prevention Australia.

Their goal is $3,000, of which they’ve raised over $1,000 so far, including registrations. The aim is to have three treadmills in use for 24 hours straight.

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in Australians aged 15 to 44, with one Australian taking their life every 8 seconds. It’s a topic that hits close to home, given the Blue Mountains strong community spirit and past issues with suicide and mental health.

Anytime Fitness Blaxland has been building teams for local businesses to get involved and support this great initiative, as well as making the event open to non-members. Anyone can register and take part, or alternatively donate via the link below. They’ve had close to 100 registrations so far, as well as bringing many local businesses on board.

Anytime Fitness has hosted the event previously, raising a national total of $395,000, and they’re aiming for over $500,000 this year!
