Forget Eat Pray Love, rather Walk Talk Eat
FORGET Eat Pray Love, the latest thing in life-changing movements for those wanting a healthier existence is Walk Talk Eat.
The free event will be on tomorrow at Robelle Domain Parklands in Springfield Central from 7am-1pm incorporating the regular Springfield markets.
Walk Talk Eat is supporting beyondblue, the Australian non-profit organisation which aims to increase awareness and improve the treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and related mental disorders.
The first part is a walk around Robelle Domain including a gnome hunt, and everyone who finishes will get a beyondblue wrist band and a 14-day trial pass to Just Sports N Fitness Centres.
Next is the 10am talk with speeches and a toast to good health by Toastmasters and health professionals to inspire the community to eat healthy, communicate and exercise.
The major prizes of a raffle will be a 12-month gym membership at Just Sports N Fitness and a three-month learn-to-swim pass for Just Sports N Fitness Pools.
The Springfield Markets operate out of the car park and Walk Talk Eat will be in the circle area.
Wray Organic Market and Cafe will be one of the stallholders.
Ipswich store co-manager Karen Freeman said they were invited "because we believe organic food gets people well".
"It's all preservative-free and it's often the additives in these foods that can cause depression and things like that," she said.
"We're just there with a lovely stall to encourage people with their healthy eating plan."
