Scott Austin, General Manager of Love Out Loud Foundation said
he is very proud to see the Foundation host the event.

“Raising much-needed funds to support impact in educational
initiatives and programs in the mental health sector for our World’s
Young, is key.

Having the rowing community here in Queensland to support the event is incredible, what a fun and playful activity for people to be involved in, as well as all the activities on the day for families to enjoy together.”

Operations Manager of Inspire Health Services, West End, Zac Litherland, said he was honoured to be partnering with the Love Out Loud Foundation to host ‘Row Out Loud’ as a big supporter and advocate of focusing on mental health and wellbeing education for our future generations.

“The upcoming Row Out Loud event is one that our valued members of Inspire Health Services, and the local community, are looking forward to being involved with. We hope there will be lots of continued support in the lead-up to the event day and plenty of valuable funds being raised in order to benefit our young people.”

“Mental health affects many people around the globe, of all different ages. We know early intervention and support are truly key in providing our young with the toolsets required. Love Out Loud Foundation’s ambitions in using tools like meditation and mindfulness to raise self awareness, with love and compassion, is admirable,” stated Zac.

Love Out Loud Foundation is on a mission to raise $1-milliondollars to invest in impactful initiatives in the mindfulness and wellbeing mental health sector. In order to do this, they need the community’s support.

The Foundation is able to optimize the impact of donations by investing in education and investment funds with the distribution of funding going to individuals, communities and organisations delivering mental health and wellbeing initiatives, programs and action.
