Dozens of the region’s young people gathered at Sturt Reserve on Thursday to take part in the headspace day colour blast fun run.
Dressed in white, the runners made their way through the reserve where headspace staff blasted them with a vivid array of coloured chalk.
The run was hosted in conjunction with headspace day and encouraged young people to maintain good mental health.
Sherrie Gayford said the day was important for her family as her daughter, Rylee, suffers from scoliosis.
“12 months ago Rylee had surgery where metal rods where put in the majority of her spine,” she said. “We’ve come out here today because over the last few months she gone through some big hurdles, mentally, emotionally and physically. “It’s been a big year for us and it’s great to have this support.”
