The Cargo to Grenfell Walk (C2G) is a 96km fundraiser walk which takes place over three days in the second week of March.
The initiative was created with the purpose to assist people suffering with mental health related issues through a community driven environment dedicated to raising money and awareness.
Nick and Nadine Daly, Alison Stephens, Kirsten Stevenson, Carolyn Austin, Ken Wilson and Colleen Coker, all local Canowindra residents are looking forward to taking on the challenge in March.
With training well underway for the team some are excited and others have their reservations about the 96km journey.
“It is great to take part in an event that goes through your home town and supports local businesses along the way,” said Alison Stephens from Canowindra Tyre Service.
The beneficiary for 2020 is Rural and Remote Mental Health who develop, tailor and implement mental health awareness, prevention and intervention programs Australia-wide, with three key programs culturally tailored for rural and remote communities. RRMH program objectives are to:
• Deliver culturally targeted and demonstrably effective prevention programs linked directly to early interventions;
• Raise awareness, reduce mental ill-health stigma and prevent suicides;
• Evaluate and translate the outcomes;
• Educate and train natural helpers and community leaders so as to embed skills and knowledge in communities
• Educate individuals, families and communities with pathways to help
