Mental Health

Chris’ story | Team member spotlight

Did you know that Chris, Head to Health Manager, is a motorcycle enthusiast and mental health advocate?

Last year, Chris participated in a charity motorcycle ride called ‘The Gentlemen’s Ride’.

This event takes place annually worldwide and Chris rode with 600 fellow riders in Brisbane and collectively raised over $130,000 for men’s mental health and cancer research.

Chris raised $670, and participants in the event raised over $7 million worldwide!

Since The Gentlemen’s Ride started a decade ago, they have raised over $44 million for Men’s health and operate rides in 107 countries.

Congratulations, Chris!

When Chris is not on a motorcycle, he can be found at Footprints.

I love it, I’m lucky to have the team we have, all the way up to Redcliffe, out to Logan and Redlands. I love my team because they are big supporters for lived experience and their voice. Everyone is collaborative.

Chris, thank you for your passion for mental health, at Footprints and in the wider community. Footprints clients and staff are also very fortunate to have you on the team!
