Departing 10am on the 10th October 2012 from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS) Offices, 55 Annerley Road, Woolloongabba QLD 4102, Mr Steve Widders (Legally Blind) & Dr Mick Adams will walk and cycle to Sydney in order to increase awareness of the importance of family health.
Mr Tim Mathieson, in his capacity as a Men’s Health Ambassador and Patron of the Australian Men’s Shed Association officially announced the ‘Walk and Ride Widders’ event in Armidale on the 14th June during Men’s Health Week (11th - 17th June). Mr Mathieson is expected to join the riders once they reach Sydney and conclude the ride at Redfern Park on the 24th October.
Supported by Motorpass, The Man Expo and a number of others, Walk and Ride Widders is an invitation for all Australian men and their families to realise their personal obligations and responsibility to each other and more importantly to take a definite decision to make a difference and improve their physical, mental, spiritual and environmental health.
The project aims to;
? raise awareness of the importance of family heath and healthy communities,
? raise funds for community health projects and initiatives,
? motivate men to be more responsible in relation to their own health and as a result the well being of their families,
? highlight the importance of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers to be more aware of their personal health and importantly their responsibility and obligations to their families and communities; to emphasise their value as men in their family and community,
? raise awareness of men’s health by engaging with partners such as the Aboriginal community controlled health services, Medicare Local (formally Division of General Practices), Men’s Group and other appropriate organisations to conduct motivational workshops and health checks (available to all) in the township along the route.
