Healthier Illawarra Men IMD Lunch

In 2023, Healthier Illawarra Men (HIM) will be hosting our second International Men's Day event. Quickly building a reputation for delivering top-quality, inspirational events, HIM invites you to come and celebrate International Men's Day while listening to yet another speaker who will move everyone in the room.

This year's special guest will be the inspirational Brett Connellan - surfer, marathon runner, Moloka'i 2 O'ahu open water board paddler and shark attack survivor.

Following a shark attack and driven by mental toughness to exceed expectations during rehabilitation, the new version of Brett, fuelled by purpose, is driven to use his unique and powerful story to help others make the most out of their journeys.

Previous events have hosted guest speakers such as UFC world champion Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski, Karl Stefanovic and Gus Worland.

Once again we will have Pay It Forward tickets on offer for purchase. If you're in a position to buy a ticket (or even a table!) we will work with our program delivery partners to offer seats to their members or those less fortunate who may otherwise not have been able to attend.

Healthier Illawarra Men was formed in 2009 with a simple mission to empower men to make positive choices for their physical and mental health, and to provide them with the resources and support necessary to lead healthier lives.

We want to help the men of the Illawarra to be healthier so that they can build stronger communities.
