#Tour De Tig A Great Success
On March 21st we woke and begun running from Burnie to Hobart for Tour de Tig 2. The reason these seven men run 360 kilometres over four days is simple, we wanted to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health.
All 7 of us have been touched by suicide. We know the devastation it brings, and we know the grief that it leaves you with.
Too many people take their own life because they don’t feel comfortable enough to turn to the person closest to them and open up about how they are feeling.
We had such great support along the way from people giving us a toot or people just a stopping for a chat, and Longford Football Club for feeding us. We thank everyone for their support.
Coffee Month at Banjos
On May 2nd with our good friends at Banjos Bakery we launched Coffee Month.
Every large coffee sold in ALL 37 Banjo’s stores across Australia, will see 50 cents donated to us.
So make sure catch up with friends and family this month at a Banjo’s store. SPEAK UP Stay ChatTY merchandise is also available in all stores. Thank you for helping us spread such an important message.
We are so pumped to have partnered up with this year’s Uni Revue for their 70th year.

“96th Street” supporting Stay ChatTY!!!!
“96th Street” is a brand new watch range that has just launched online. Hobart lad Dylan Fyfe has started this fresh new collection, and has decided to support Stay ChatTY along the way. Purchasing the “Lincoln” watch, sees $15 from each sale come to us. So head to www.96thstreet.com.au to support this awesome local business by grabbing yourself a new suave watch. Thanks Dylan for dropping one into Mitch. Very nice.
Tour de Tig 2017
The inaugural Tour de Tig was held in 2014 and raised just over $25,000. In 2017, we are pleased to present Tour de Tig 2 (TDT2)which will see our founder Mitch, along with six of his good mates, run from Burnie to Hobart from the 21 – 25 March.
The aim of this event is to not only take on the huge physical challenge of running 360km on foot, but to create conversation around the state about the mental health issues that so many of us face. Stay ChatTY’s message is to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health issues by telling as many people along the way that it is OK TO NOT BE OK.
Good physical health can reduce stress and help you manage symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. #TeamChatTY decided to give YOU the opportunity to be part of TDT2. #GetMovingInMarch encourages individuals to identify their own fitness goal to work towards whilst raising money for Stay ChatTY.
