Lift the Lid walk for Mental Health 

Great to see so many folks come out to support the walk for Mental health, hosted by Mooloolaba Rotary. Our Alex team was at the halfway point to encourage the walkers to continue on Maroochydore Surf Club and took a few photo's of the supporters who enjoyed a beachside walk in support of a great cause. 
Its always a great event, and more special when you hear the stories of those who have either battled with mental illness, or have been touched by this disease.  
The event is a permanent fixture in the Rotary Health month, and of course all the proceeds go to Rotary Health, which is just an amazing organisation where Rotarian Health professionals give freely of their time and expertise to make a difference to so many around the region. 
Not many families have managed to avoid mental illness and this is one group who faithfully come along to show their support every year...
There was a selection of shirts, and all sorts of body shapes, a certain scribe was caught in Usain Bolt posture (really?) below, along with another supporter of the club..who I swear was running past me a minute before...but maybe Scotty was just showing off..
..and then the regular Prue and Chris, who have supported the walk since its start..
and then some of the youngsters took advantage of the rest stop..
..and some of the youngsters have a bit of filling out to do before the shirt fits....
..and Councillor Natoli is becoming a regular at Rotary events...following his help with the Alex Rotary "Surf how and Shine"
and a big thanks to Team Alex, Wendy, Carmel, Craig and Tony behind the camera ..
and a special hello to Rotarians from Buderim Rotary and the Rotary Noosa Daybreak club...Passport club were also there so thank you all
