Kilt run a leg-up for headspace ser­vice

Comment News (Armadale) - - Street Watch -

HEADSPACE will get a help­ing hand from the com­ing Perth Kilt Run.

It’s one of three lo­cal char­i­ties in­clud­ing the Amanda Young Foun­da­tion and the In­ten­sive Care Foun­da­tion set to re­ceive the pro­ceeds from event reg­is­tra­tions.

Headspace Ar­madale man­ager An­nette Chivers said the Perth Kilt Run rep­re­sents a great com­mu­nity event for headspace to be in­volved in.

“Phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity is fan­tas­tic for men­tal health, and we en­cour­age our clients to stay ac­tive and con­nected with their com­mu­nity. Perth Kilt Run checks both th­ese boxes,” Ms Chivers said.

The Ar­madale premises have been open for two years and help a va­ri­ety of clients be­tween 12 and 25 with men­tal health, work and study ser­vices, med­i­cal as­sis­tance through an in-house doc­tor, and drug and al­co­hol sup­port.

To reg­is­ter for the Perth Kilt Run, head to perthk­il­trun.com.au be­fore noon on Septem­ber 9.
