We're Clocking K’s for R U OK?
Sometimes all you need is a simple conversation to change the path of your day!
A group of Coolgardie Community members have decided to join in the R U OK Day challenge to help close the gap on loneliness and isolation through walking, fun activities and conversations.
Our vision for this mission is to create an opportunity for the Coolgardie Community to get together to create conversations and friendships. We aim for everyone to get to know their neighbour and be reminded of what an awesome little town we have.
During this challenge we hope to walk, as a group, 300kms in the month of July and raise $3000.00 towards helping R U OK? to create conversations around the world.
The R U OK? Challenge helps to spread the message and works to help prevent suicide.
About 8 people take their own lives in Australia every day.
For every death, it’s estimated another 30 people will attempt suicide.
89% of people report knowing somebody who has made an attempt.
We want to help change these numbers.
R U OK?’s vision is of a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide.
Their mission is to inspire everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and support anyone struggling with life.
By inspiring people to take the time to ask, “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people who are struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.
Thank you so much for your support, together we will make a difference.
