Unfortunately I am unable to saddle up for the Snowies MTB festival but I wanted to fundraise non-the less. Hence why I have started a fundraiser initiative in an effort to contribute to The Fly Program, a remarkable not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting men’s mental health. The Fly Program seeks to raise awareness amongst the men in our communities and empower them to be both physically fit and mentally fit which in turn enables them to be better husbands, to be more present as fathers, to be empathetic and supportive mates to others, to be a brother to others who turn up.
As previous participant of the Fy Program, I have first hand felt the impact that this organisation has on its participants. After volunteering my time at other retreats, I have also seen the impact this program has on people from all walks of life – from CEO’s of big corporations, retired military and first responders personnel have all found the benefit. The Fly Program is working incredibly hard to educate and help men and bring down the stigma surrounding the topic.
By making a donation you will help The Fly Program increase the number of Men In Flight programs offered, along with help support an Aussie male to attend life changing Men In Flight retreat to better their mental wellbeing. The cost for one participant is $1400 to attend a Men in Flight weekend retreat.
