Head to Head Fundraising Walk

BankVic is proud to be supporting Victoria Police and TPAV in delivering Head To Head, a fundraising walk to support current and former Victoria Police officers living with mental health issues.

The Head To Head Walk focuses on demonstrating the commitment of Victoria Police and TPAV to current and past serving officers affected by such issues.

Chief commissioner Graham Ashton and TPAV Secretary Wayne Gatt will walk a combined 1,000km to raise awareness of mental health among police, as well as raise funds in support of the new mental health fund. Funds will focus on supporting the volunteer service provided by the Retired Peer Support Officer (RPSO) Program.

As the bank for Victoria Police, we want to help Head to Head reach their goal of $500,000. All donations will go towards the RPSO Program to support their efforts in helping officers living with mental health problems.
