Sale plumber joins ride for mental health
A plumber for Sale will join five-time Bathurst 1000 champion, Steve Richards and 25 other plumbers and electricians as they ride more than 3,500 kilometres, looping Victoria and raising money and awareness for the work of Beyond Blue.
Mal Duncan from Laser Plumbing Sale and his fellow riders will leave Melbourne this Wednesday, to be farewelled by the Minister for Mental Health, Martin Foley and former Channel 10 sports reporter and Beyond Blue Ambassador, Brad McEwan.
Members of the Laser and O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Groups, have come together from across Australia and New Zealand for the ride. The first leg will take them from Luna Park to Portland and Mount Gambier.
With 1 in 8 Australian men to experience depression and 1 in 5 to experience anxiety during their lifetime, mental health is a cause that the plumbers and electricians of the group are passionate about, with Laser Plumbing Sale’s managing director Dan Smolenaars also proud of the example that Mal is sharing through his involvement with the ride.
