We were so excited to see over 50 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men join us for a Wellah Weekend in March 2019
What is a Wellah Weekend?
The EJ Whitten Foundation partnered with Spark Health to create this brand new event for Aboriginal Men, and we had the most incredible Wellah Weekend together!
A Wellah Weekend is the most fun you will ever have shaking up your lifestyle!
We coordinated some of the best facilitators in Aboriginal Health and Well-being from around the state to create an action packed agenda to fuel the mind, body and spirit.
The March 2019 Wellah Weekend was hosted by Aboriginal Psychologist and all round legend, Dr Graham Gee, while Yarn Bark, Lowell Hunter (Wayapa Wurruker), Luke Daley and Steve Parker (and heaps more!) led specialist workshops throughout the camp . The weekend finished off the weekend with a surfing session at Islands Surf School!
Wellah Weekend participants experienced:
- Opportunities to learn more about health and Aboriginal Culture.
- Fun workouts for all fitness levels and ages
- Good laughs and new friends
- Stronger mob connections
- Better links to and awareness of health services and supports
