Ski For Life

Ski for Life events have been held over the long weekend in March for over a decade.

Ski for Life Inc is raising awareness and promoting mental health, wellbeing and suicide prevention.

If you’re able to donate, it will support their grant process that is open all year round for individuals and communities to apply for in order to receive funds that will allow their project and/or event come to life- any initiative that strives to raise awareness around mental health and suicide prevention is considered.

The Murray River was duly chosen as it is the life blood of SA, along the shores of which many rural communities are doing it tough. Evidence of above average suicide and mental health issues supported the choice.

The Standby Team responds to families, friends and associates who have been bereaved through suicide. People grieve in very different ways and StandBy can provide support and assistance whether it be immediately, weeks, months or years later.  They will be a valuable support to communities throughout the events and to members of the ski and road crews.  Standby provides services throughout all of Country South Australia signifying a perfect collaboration for Ski for Life Inc‘s support of rural communities.

Should you wish to receive further information or would like to offer further support by way of donations or in-kind contributions, please do not hesitate to contact us via out contact page
