our events

events and activities throughout the year

Throughout the year, Roses in the Ocean hosts a range of events and activities aimed at connecting communities, encouraging help seeking behaviour, raising awareness around protective factors for suicide prevention, and raising funds to support kids and adolescents spending time in mental health facilities.

Rudolph’s Run

Christmas can be a difficult time for many people in our communities, and for those who have been touched by suicide, Christmas is never quite the same.

Rudolph’s Run reminds us all that the true spirit of Christmas is all about connecting with those around us, and what better way than getting together with a group of friends, gym mates, work colleagues and family for a fun, active event!

Register from October to be part of our annual Rudolph’s Run&Ride event wear your antlers, jingle bells and t-shirt with pride!
