Gotcha4Life has this week received a massive boost, accepting a donation of more than $233,500.
A giant cheque has been handed over at Sydney radio station TripleM on August 23, gratefully accepted by TripleM presenter and Gotcha4Life co-founder Gus Worland.
Chemist’s Warehouse has harnessed the generosity of Blackmore’s, L’oreal, Nature’s Way, Nature’s Own, Henkle Healthy Care and Hydralyte, in support of Gotcha4Life.
“We are overwhelmed at this level of support from these great companies, as well as teams and individuals,” says Gus. “It means we are able to kick-off our activities to improve the mental health of Australian men.
Co-founder Gareth Pike says he too is thankful for the support and is delighted the money will help bring down Australia’s appalling male suicide rate. “Today is a significant milestone for Gotcha4Life,” he says. ” Thanks to this cheque we are able to commit to taking our Gotcha4life program into the first 100 schools in Australia, where we will start or goal of equipping Australia’s 1.4 million teenage schoolboys with the skills they need to become mentally healthy men.”
