Run For MI Life

Wests Leagues Club, Walkerston

Registration closes on:

Friday, 18 October 2019 at 6:00 PM - (GMT+10:00) Brisbane

Mackay Sugar Run For MI Life Fun Run

Mackay Sugar Run for MI Life is held in the name of our brother, uncle and friend, Matthew Ivory, who sadly took his own life on the 19th October 2012.

Matt was a fun-loving, kind hearted person who enjoyed a joke and relished making others laugh. His death was both unexpected and devastating to those who knew him. We, as his family, intend on using his name to change the perception of depression and suicide in our community and take away the negative stigma attached.

Since the first run in 2014, Run For MI Life has spread to 3 locations, seen thousands of people run and has donated over $150,000 to inspire people to seek help and support when it's needed. A large focus of Run For MI Life is to ensure that the SafeTALK course is offered for FREE within the communities that run, to make them suicide safe.
