Local gym hosting 24 hour treadmill challenge for suicide prevention

A Gold Coast gym is encouraging locals to put their bodies on their line to raise awareness of suicide and funds towards its prevention this Friday.

Anytime Fitness at Southport is calling for people to take part in their Tread Together event, which kicks of at 3pm on Friday, and runs through until 3pm on Saturday.

Gold Coasters can get involved either as an individual or as a team, and can choose to run, walk, or even dance, for 15 minutes or longer if they wish.


Locals wanting to take part don’t have to be a member of an Anytime Fitness club, with everyone welcome to participate in the fundraiser.

Those unable to jump on a treadmill can still help by donating the cause at: treadtogether.gofundraise.com.au/page/southport2018

Anytime Fitness Southport is just one of just hundreds of clubs hosting a Tread Together event to raise much needed funds for Suicide Prevention Australia. To find out more, visit: treadtogether.gofundraise.com.au/cms/home
