PLEASE SUPPORT OUR OFFICIAL EVENT CHARITY PARTNER: ONE IN FIVE

One in Five


Rapid Ascent is proud to continue its support of ONE IN FIVE in 2019.

ALL RUNNERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO READ THE INFORMATION BELOW AND TO SUPPORT THIS INCREDIBLE CHARITY. 

ONE IN FIVE

ONE IN FIVE are excited to once again partner with Surf Coast Century for the seventh year in a row!

This is ONE IN FIVE’s story….

One in Five Australians are suffering from a mental illness. ONE IN FIVE wants to find cures for mental illness.  We want to turn One into None.

One in five is different from all other mental health charities. We are the only ones that are 100% dedicated to raising funds for medical research. We believe research is the key to finding the answers, discovering better treatments and hopefully unlocking cures. As such, 95% of all funds raised go directly to our research partners. We are proud to support leading Australian mental illness experts at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and Monash Health.

Our founder, Liz Wardlaw, explains why she started on in five. 

 HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you want to do something bold about mental illness, challenge yourself this year and register now for the 2019 Surf Coast Century and fundraise for ONE IN FIVE.

Your participation in the Surf Coast Century is an extremely impressive act - It requires an extraordinary amount of effort during the months of training and the event itself. And it's extreme, just like mental illness. All money donated to ONE IN FIVE will fund research projects that directly impact mental health. Find out more here…
