In the last edition of the e-newsletter we introduced the new Gold Coast health and lifestyle initiative, More to the Weekend. Instigator, Courtney Angus, is concerned about the rates that drugs and alcohol are used on the Gold Coast.
Courtney started this More to the Weekend as an alternative to the night-club scene, encouraging young people to live life to the fullest without the use of drugs and alcohol.
The More to the Weekend concept creates a supportive environment for young people that encourages a healthy lifestyle and increases positive community activity in a sports setting. It also builds community knowledge and strives to change the acceptability of drugs and alcohol.
Three social events have now been held, attracting close to 100 people per event.
Like all community activities, More to the Weekend needs financial backing. To lend your support to the Schoolies events, head to the More to the Weekend gofundme account. You can also contact Courtney Angus via the More to the Weekend Facebook page.
