Mont Albert and Surrey Hills Rotary Club is running one of only two Lift the Lid Walks that are being held in Victoria - so there is one right in our back yard.
Keep the day - February 26, 2023 available to participate in this health, fun fundraising event.

This will be the second year, Rotary has teamed up with none other than the St Kilda Football Club to create a fun-filled morning for all ages including four-legged friends. Join us for a “Footy walk” through Gardiners Creek Reserve, where you can practice your footy skills, have some fun and win prizes at the various “AFL Activity Stations” around the course. After the walk we invite all kids aged 8-12 years to join in on our football clinic hosted by real life St Kilda players.

This event is all about good mental health. That’s why 100% of money raised will contribute to a 3.5year scholarship for a mental health researcher at a Victorian University.

​This donation is dedicated to the late St Kilda player Danny 'Spud' Frawley who battled with mental illness and tragically lost his life in 2019. 

Details of the event:     Sunday 26th, February 2023 start from 10am with registration open from 9am.

Where:                          Gardiners Creek Reserve, Holland Avenue, Burwood VIC 3125

You can participate in a  3kn, or  6 km, or 9km walk and a football clinic hosted by the St Kilda Football Club. Food and drink vans on-site.

The event is open to walkers and footy fans alike. Everyone who has been impacted by or cares about Mental Health - and the event is a dog friendly event.  Dogs are welcome!

Entry fee: $30 for adults.   Kids 15 and under FREE including the footy clinic.​  Tickets available online

In keeping with the Lift the Lid colours would you please wear something purple!
