777 MARATHON UPDATE: IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BRAVEHEARTS’ CEO

COVID-19 is a health crisis that has become an economic crisis; everyone has been affected and unfortunately, Bravehearts is not immune.

As the Government has tightened rules concerning events, gatherings and domestic travel, Bravehearts’ 777 Marathon is impacted significantly.

I am sorry to inform you, that given the Prime Minister’s recent updates, Bravehearts is left with no choice but to postpone the 777 Marathon to a later date this year.

We are working tirelessly behind the scenes to develop alternatives to a physical event if that is required, whilst also planning in preparation for the physical event to take place when permissions for such an event are given. At this stage, we are constructing as many options as possible as the timeline is not something that we can predict

Child sexual assault and exploitation does not cease due to COVID-19 and in many cases the opportunity for this crime to be committed increases as vulnerable children are required to isolate at home.

Bravehearts’ work to Educate, Empower and Protect has never been so important. Our critical Training services along with some of our Education teams are unable to deliver our important message of keeping children safe to schools and workplaces. This has put enormous financial distress on Bravehearts.

Bravehearts needs your support now more than ever. If you can donate to our crisis appeal, please do.

As a valued part of 777 Event, your involvement supports one of the most crucial fundraising and awareness events that enables Bravehearts to provide critical services to children. I thank you for your patience as we plan the next steps and commit that Bravehearts’ team will keep you updated as soon as new information comes to hand with regard to confirmed dates and new initiatives.

Kind regards,

Alison Geale

CEO, Bravehearts Foundation

Dear valued clients,

The health, safety and wellbeing of our clients is, and always has been Bravehearts highest priority. The situation regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) locally and around the world is changing daily. Considering the latest government directives in response to COVID-19, and in looking forward as far as is possible, we are making changes to the way we deliver our support services. Bravehearts have moved to a position of contactless service delivery. All regular sessions and support services will now be conducted via telephone and our E-Health platform.

Bravehearts will continue to provide counselling and support services to all existing and new clients.  

The decision to proceed in this way has been made to safeguard the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and that of the community. The service changes are temporary. We will advise you of further changes.

We continue to accept and action new referrals for all services. Anyone wanting to access our services can call Bravehearts on 1800 272 831. People can still be referred, by calling, or by filling out an online referral form. We anticipate having a significant online and telephone capability to support clients and the community through this time.

If you have any questions about the changes outlined above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time.
