Join Lifeline's Lake, Rattle and Roll

By Rev. Dr Katherine Rainger, Senior Chaplain

Radford Awareness and Service (RAS) students invite you to join the broader Canberra community for a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Come together as the Radford community and the wider Canberra community join in some fun and raise awareness for mental health on Sunday, 8 October.

Lifeline needs 5000 people to create a Canberra Lifeline and break the World Twist Record

One of our most critical support programs in Australia is provided by Lifeline.

They exist to ensure that no person must face their darkest moments alone. 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year, they are there to listen to anyone feeling overwhelmed, distressed, experiencing a crisis in their life or simply needing someone to talk to. Everyone at some stage in their life has needed that shoulder to lean on, and Lifeline's there for you at any time of the day.

So now is the time to come together and create a Lifeline around Canberra to support this very special organisation.

The current World Record set in Mississippi back in 2014 is 3,040 people dancing the Twist. So, we are going to put Lifeline on the world stage by creating our own Lifeline around the two bridges on Lake Burley Griffin and set the new World Record dancing to the Twist.

When: Sunday, 8 October
Registration: Please try to register beforehand here. Registrations on the day can be done on arrival via your phone. Please check in with an official in your designated area.
