• RUN: Warracknabeal resident Justin Knorpp completed the Run Melbourne event and raised $2500 for Beyond Blue recently.

Justin Knorpp was number three of the top five fundraisers of the recent Run Mebourne event, raising $2500.
Mr Knorpp fundraised and competed in the run in the hope of raising awarness and funds for Beyond Blue.
He said he completed the event in support of Beyond Blue as he wanted to encourage people to speak up about their mental health.
“I want to let people know that they are not alone and, ‘It ain’t weak to speak’, and that, ‘It is ok to not be okay,” Mr Knorpp said.
Mr Knropp thanked everyone that has donated and helped him raise awareness and funds for the organisation.
“A massive thank you to everyone that offered me support, encouragement and donated and helped me raise awareness and much needed funds,” he said.
He said it was different running around the city compared to the country.
“It was a lot of fun running around the city and the MCG, I feel privileged to have run for Beyond Blue and have them have me as part of their team,” he said.
Mr Knorpp said he and another community member were hoping to become facilitators in the Wimmera regional for another mental health intiative called “Outside The Locker Room” in the near future.
