Gus Worland is the host of the Triple M Sydney breakfast radio show The Grill Team. Gus is also the founder of the Gotcha4Life Foundation and invites local surf clubs to join him and the team to raise awareness and funds to help build mental health and fitness in our community.
The organisation believes in the power of prevention through connection and champions the idea of proactively building mental fitness and the resilience required to deal better with the challenges that life throws at us.
The goal this year is $100,000 to fund mental health workshops and training programs. Visit the website for details on the program at gotcha4lifefunrun.org or click through to the flyer HERE.
