Funlab’s Day of Fun is back to support youth mental health

The annual Funlab's Day of Fun is back this September 5 and aims to raise $300,000 in support of youth mental health.

This exciting event promises a day filled with fun, and a touch of competition, all while supporting a worthy cause. Funlab, the entertainment company known for its unique venues, has joined forces with headspace, an organization focused on youth mental health, to create a day that’s not only fun-filled but also about giving back.

Tee off for a cause at Holey Moley Adelaide

The fun takes place at Adelaide’s Holey Moley, where you can putt your stuff around 9 mini-golf holes. The venue’s creative courses provide the perfect backdrop for a day of lighthearted leisure. The best part, all of this can be enjoyed for the small fee of just $5. It’s a rare opportunity to engage in a game of mini golf while contributing to a worthy cause.

But the fun doesn’t stop at golf. For those who enjoy belting out their favorite tunes, you can shine on the Karaoke stage. For only $20, you can enjoy an hour of karaoke, showcasing your vocal skills and perhaps even discovering some hidden talents. Every dollar from bookings made during the event will go directly towards supporting headspace.

Youth mental health at the heart of Funlab’s mission

The Day of Fun isn’t just about having a fun – it’s about addressing a critical issue that affects the wellbeing of countless young people. Funlab’s commitment to youth mental health initiatives is evident in their collaboration with headspace. Youth mental health is a pressing concern, with a quarter of all young people in Australia experiencing mental health issues each year. The Day of Fun provides an opportunity for people to come together, enjoy themselves, and at the same time, make a positive impact on young lives.

The event offers a platform for individuals to contribute to headspace in more ways than one. The event raise funds for participating headspace centers, and also supports headspace’s Online Communities. These real-time peer-led group chat services are manned by young people, for young people. Trained Peer Support Moderators from all over Australia offer assistance and moderation on various topics, including navigating relationships, coping with challenges, addressing work and study concerns, and providing support for LGBTQIA+ youth.

In the past year alone, headspace’s Online Communities have been accessed more than 110,000 times, conducting 153 peer chats on crucial subjects. The success of these online platforms highlights the importance of accessible and relevant mental health resources for young individuals, especially in the digital age.

Funlab CEO Michael Schreiber said Funlab wants to bring back the ‘fun’ in fundraising to achieve their biggest goal yet. Michael says:

We want to encourage everyone to jump online and book an activity slot at their local Funlab for $5, or come down on the day, and get involved. This is an opportunity for us to not only raise funds for a very important charity, but to support youth mental health, while providing a fun experience for friends and families.
