NewRun Mowathon

By Daniel Robinson

Help me support the mental health of young people

On Sunday the 16th April 2023 i will be joining the elite Newcastle runners while they battle the NewRun Marathon. As the runners tie up their shoe laces and stretch their calves, i will be checking my wheels and making sure my catcher is secure.

I will be running the full marathon distance while pushing a lawn mower around the great city of Newcastle. For anyone running the marathon, make sure you keep an eye out. I may mow you down.

With the help of some generous sponsors i will be raffling off a prize pool. Everyone that donates $30 will get a ticket in the raffle. Every $50 will get you two entries.

The prizes that will be drawn are:

*Victa Corvette 400 lawn mower rrp $629 donated by Taylors mowers Warnesbay (the mower pushed in the event)

*Genesis Fitness 3-month membership & PT session valued at $450 (Genesis cooks hill)

*Budgy Smuggler prize pack x3

*1hr Massage voucher from Adamstown remedial massage

*$100 LSKD Voucher

*OA Conditioning apparel pack, Hoody, T-shift, Hat

I am raising funds for headspace to support the mental health and wellbeing of young Australians. If you can spare a few dollars then please help by donating to this great cause. If you are free on the day then please come down and help support me through the push.

Each year, one in four young people experience a mental health issue, and 75 per cent of mental health disorders emerge before a person turns 25. Sadly, suicide is still the leading cause of death for young people in Australia.

headspace provides mental health services to young people 12 to 25 online, by phone and through headspace centres in metro and regional areas across Australia.

Please help me make a difference in the lives of young Australians by donating today.
