Anytime Fitness Host 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge for 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.
