Laps for Life

Get involved in Laps for Life this March in support of youth mental health service ReachOut. The swimming challenge event is open to everyone across Australia and is simple to take part in. Get involved by visiting lapsforlife.com.au to register a personal swimming challenge and fundraise for youth mental health. You set your own lap or distance goal and fundraising goal and then dive on in. Laps for Life raises funds and awareness for young people in Australia living with mental health difficulties and to help prevent youth suicide with all funds raised going to ReachOut. This  is a particularly significant cause this year with young people’s mental health being heavily impacted by COVID-19 restrictions.
