Painted Dog puts One Foot Forward

November 10, 2023


Throughout October, in recognition of Mental Health Month, the pack united to participate in the “One Foot Forward” initiative. We joined forces to generate funds for Black Dog Institute for ground-breaking new mental health treatment, education and digital services into the hands of people who need it most.

Overall, 28,207 people walked in solidarity, raising an impressive $5,197,663 for mental health – a remarkable achievement.

Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded it by raising $1,967 and covering an impressive distance of over 3000 kilometres, addressing a crucial issue that deeply resonates with us at Painted Dog.
