Bunbury Runners Club always donate to a charity and for 2020 Australia Day Fun Run a percentage of the proceeds are going to these charities below:
Beyond Blue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in Australia.
They provide information and support to help everyone achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live. They work to give everyone in Australia the confidence to speak openly about anxiety, depression and suicide – both to seek support when they need it and to check in with those close to them – and they tackle prejudice and discrimination wherever they exist.
Funds raised go towards the Beyond Blue Support Service, which gives every person in Australia the opportunity to talk through his or her concerns with a trained mental health professional. People who access the service can receive a brief one-on-one counselling session to address an immediate concern, as well as receive information and advice on continuing to seek support.
