Speak up. Stand up. Run for the Herd

Run, walk or move 5-50k to help smash the stigma surrounding mental health.


Be a part of a movement to support mental health with batyr's Run For The Herd's Virtual Running Festival. Take part anywhere, anytime, over the 7th, 8th, 9th of August. Are you up for the challenge?


Why Run for the Herd?



For every 30 students in Australia, 7 will have a mental health issue, yet only 2 will reach out for support, leaving 5 suffering in silence.


By joining Run for the Herd, you are showing your support for youth mental health. All fundraising efforts will help batyr reach more young Australians through fun and impactful programs, that smash the stigma surrounding mental health and empower young people to reach out for support.
