RUOK? Relay @ RGS

The overall aim of our relay was to raise awareness about the link between childhood bullying, depression and suicide, as well as the importance of asking friends and colleagues the question ‘are you ok?’ We wanted to have an afternoon where we got people from all year levels together to have fun and support a good cause. The R U Ok? campaign was launched in 2009 and after 3 years it is estimated that 58% of the Australian population know about the initiative. We hoped that after our Relay the message will spread even further, inspiring the students to help reduce our suicide rate by reaching out to others.
