The Rotary Club Mont Albert & Surrey Hills recently held the 4th Annual Lift the Lid Walk for Mental Health at Deakin University Burwood. The Walk was held at Gardiners Creek Reserve.
The Club is proud to have funded a $42,000 3.5year PhD Research Scholarship, which was awarded to Jordan Vella at Monash University. Jordan’s research is into the Risk-Protective Factors for the Mental Health of Retired Elite Athletes.
The event is a unique community outing, as it includes not only walking but also fun AFL inspired activities around the course. To add to the fun atmosphere during the walk, participants have an activity card to mark off all 10 activities listed. They then win a free ice cream. The Walk is held Lift the Lid walk annually to support Mental Health
