What is Zero2Hero?
Zero2Hero is a not-for-profit WA-based association dedicated to increasing the understanding of mental health issues and the awareness of mental health services among children and young people through innovative programs, events, and education.
Are parents able to participate in the sessions?
Parents are invited to attend the first session where we set the scene for the program and discuss intention and commitment to set goals.
Are parents able to volunteer?
Yes! There will be several roles for which we will be seeking volunteers. Please ask your child if they are comfortable with you being involved. If you are inclined towards running, you may consider volunteering as a running support.
All volunteers will require a Working With Children Check as well as Police Clearance. Zero2Hero will assist you with this and reimburse application fees.
Who delivers the program?
Zero2Hero and their team of workshop facilitators will be providing growth sessions and coaching. Our facilitators all have extensive mental health training and are highly experienced in working with young people.
The team have varied backgrounds and degrees, such as Psychology, English Literature and Music. The running sessions will be designed and overseen by our experienced fitness coaches. Many of our passionate team are providing their time, skills and energy pro-bono – seeing value in the program and the skills and resilience that can be developed at this stage.
All proceeds are invested back into Zero2Hero to assist in the organisation’s mission.
When will running training take place?
The workshop and running session will run on Tuesdays after school, from 3pm to 4.30pm. It is highly recommended that the students also take part in optional running sessions on Thursday mornings (starting 7.45am) before school. These morning sessions will be arranged depending on numbers, and further information will be provided closer to the time.
What does the Fun Run involve?
This run is the culmination of the goal focus and the achievement of the goal. Children will run a 4km course in the area, in the afternoon on Sunday 18th June. We encourage family and friends to cheer participants on and join us in celebrating their achievement. More details will be provided during the program.
