ANYTIME Fitness centres at Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings will take part in a 24 hour Treadmill Challenge on Saturday 25 May to raise awareness of the issues surrounding suicide.
At the Mornington centre Christopher Ali will attempt to complete the whole 24 hours himself on a single treadmill.
Last year Anytime Fitness centres raised $390,000 and this year they aim to raise $600,000.
The challenge comes after the gyms teamed up with Suicide Prevention Australia to reduce the devastating impacts of suicide, which claims about 3000 lives each year.
