Collarenebri, Lightning Ridge & Walgett Far West Active Fest and Wellbeing Evenings
Absolutely amazing turn out for the Far West Active Fest in Collarenebri, Lightning Ridge and Walgett. We saw nearly 500 people for the 3 days back to back all having the best time playing games and joining in on the MALO Colour Run. Everyone smiling and getting active , plus getting some awesome gear makes these events truly satisfying 😊
On top of this, the Black Dog Institute again ran mental health training sessions for the local Rugby League clubs and all 3 towns responded so well to this. With Rugby League kicking off only around the corner it was great seeing so many numbers running around preparing for the season. The players may be even sharper this year after learning from the great Nathan Blacklock who was the leading try-scorer of the NRL 3 years running!
Here is a great article from The Land regarding these events:
