More than $11,000 has been raised from the 2018 Jetty 2 Jetty (J2J) for one of the Redcliffe Peninsula’s leading youth mental health services after
more than 4,400 runners laced up to participate in the 2018 Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run.
Every year J2J nominates a charity to support and raise funds through race registration and encourages additional fundraising. In 2018, Headspace Redcliffe, a
Youth Mental Health Foundation was chosen as the charity.
Through J2J this year the event has helped to highlight the importance of the services Headspace Redcliffe offers to support the healthy well being of
our community’s youth and young adults.
Congratulations Headspace Redcliffe
Due to the overwhelming support of the 2018 J2J, the first ever sold-out event, we have raised a whopping $11,244.96 to support the foundation!
The money raised will go to Headspace Redcliffe, which provides mental health support
from experienced health practitioner’s, alcohol and drugs counselling, support groups, youth groups, programs for depression and anxiety management
and much more.
Headspace Redcliffe intend to use the donated funds to deliver outreach support services to young people aged 12-25 in the Moreton Bay Community.
Headspace Redcliffe have been attending the J2J for the past 3 years, this year they held an information stall, providing information about their services
to race participants. Headspace Redcliffe plan to continue to be involved with the J2J next year.
