Laps for Life

Swim to save lives this March
Charlestown Square and ReachOut are jumping right in to support youth mental health.

Get in the pool this March, and swim to support young Aussies living with mental health difficulties. 1 in 4 people aged 14–25 live with mental health difficulties. 70% of them don’t seek help. And, suicide remains the leading cause of death of young Australians – more young Australians die each year by suicide than in car accidents or from cancer. That means that every day one young Australian takes their own life. That’s one too many.

This March, set yourself a challenge – whether you’re just starting out, or aiming for a personal best (or even a squad goal) and join Laps for Life. You can take part from anywhere across Australia, at any age or fitness level.
