Credo Financial have partnered with Outside the Locker Room, a not-for-profit which helps raise awareness for mental health in the community.
OTLR works with sporting clubs and organisations to bring awareness, education and outreach programs surrounding critical community issues. The 12-month program partnership with the community brings education and support around mental health, addiction, gambling, inclusion, social media education and bullying. It also provides the community access to the OTLR welfare team, the OTLR app and quick access to support lines, such as LifeLine.
Throughout the month of June, we will look to raise funds for OTLR, with your help, by cycling 3,128km. The distance we are riding signifies the number of lives lost in Australia to suicide in 2018. It's a similar distance as cycling from Melbourne to Brisbane and back. We know cycling to Brisbane and back isn’t the most realistic goal, so, instead we have organised for two stationary bikes to be located at Credo Head Office, where we can cycle the distance together instead.
For every $1000 raised, you are funding the ability for 1 sporting club, school or organisation around Australia to access the OTLR program and further the awareness in the community.
We encourage all participants to share their involvement in the charity event across their social media platforms. Therefore we can raise awareness of this great cause on a much larger scale!
