v One Foot Forward - Alinta Wellbeing

Alinta Wellbeing

Together our team has travelled 3,814KM’s to take One Foot Forward for mental health research!

More than $40k!!!

When Alinta agreed to match dollar for dollar what we could raise up to $20k, I wasn't particularly confident that we would get to the max, given we were half way through the month and had already made a great amount of $16.5k raised! But Alinta donated the full $20k anyway because they believe in us more than I did. We have now achieved more than that and this amazing Alinta Wellbeing team is now up to a total of over $41k. This means so much. Thanks for your support

Thank you Alinta Energy

Thank you Alinta Energy for the amazing support that you have provided this cause. We are thankful that you felt that our efforts to date, and the numerous people that the Black Dog Institute can help was worth being a part of. I can't express enough how much it means to me that this cause, that has taken over everyone in team Alinta Wellbeing, is being supported by our company!

World Mental Health Day!

It is World Mental Health Day! I hope this helps raise the awareness that it needs. Additionally, Alinta Wellbeing's fundraising has just ticked of $15k on this day.

Let's keep going with One Foot Forward

Still Going Strong

Our team grew with another person joining today. Welcome Cindy, and glad you part of the team.

Everything is going well within the team as we are continuing to progress, both fundraising as well as striving towards our km targets. Amazingly we are almost at $15k and over 900km so far.

Awesome experience!

3rd day in

So the recording of kms has been a bit sporadic, and the automatic links haven't worked for everyone, but as a team we have been making great progress. Given most of the day 1 km and only some of the day 2 have come through, we still have amassed 268.5km recorded so far! Great work team

Ready to Go!

So it is the night before and this amazing team have raised over $11000, and the commitment for the walking has also increased. As a team we are now committing to 2235km for the month, or almost 69km/day for every day in October.

Almost starting!

The team continues to stride forward. The kms committed is now over 2000km in total for the team, and the fundraising is inching toward $10k. Thanks for all of the support we have received so far and look forward getting our walking started!

Amazing Effort So Far

The team has so far made an amazing effort in rallying the troops to support and donate to this cause. As a team we have so far raised just over $8500 and we haven't even taken a recorded walk yet! Thanks to all the people that have donated so far, we really appreciate the support

km after km

This team has so far committed to walking, running, etc a total 1,700km during October! There will be plenty of time, sweat, blisters, and sore muscles as a result. Surely that is enough to convince you to donate to the cause! Or even better you can join the team as well.

Team is growing

G'day all,

Alinta Wellbeing is growing! We are now 9 strong with another 2 pending. We have people in multiple business pillars and locations. There should be nothing holding you back if you are considering joining. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of the members you can see on this website. The more the merrier!

Cheers
Alinta Wellbeing

We're putting One Foot Forward to support mental health research

Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year? In fact, every day in Australia, 8 people will die from suicide.

Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. 

But this October, we’ll be putting one foot forward to make a difference to the lives of people touched by mental illness and suicide. 

We're fundraising to raise money for life-changing research into treatment and prevention of mental illness, as well as vital support services. 

Support our challenge and help change the lives of people living with mental illness. 

Thank you to our Sponsors

I love you for this! You are amazing, selfless and just a great human. A forever friend! Having reached rock bottom in my own life as a result of grief which manifested into a mental illness which cost me love, family, friendships and respect. I'm all for awareness and support for those struggling. You are loved, you are needed, fight another day and make the tough decision to talk about it. Good luck Mel, love your work. Love you kid.
