R U OK? Day
Hey Sport, R U OK? R U OK? Day on Thursday 8 September encourages all of us to have regular, meaningful conversations to support anyone struggling with life’s ups and downs. This year our message is: Ask R U OK? No qualifications needed. Because a conversation could change a life. The earlier we genuinely ask, ‘Are you OK?’, the greater our chance of helping someone before they’re in crisis.
Please visit our friendly Service Desk team on arrival to register for Monash Sport's R U OK? Day offers. Registration involves simply completing our Casual User form. *Subject to availability. For operating hours, click here.
For the Peninsula Focus Boxing class, please bring along boxing inners. Alternatively, these can be purchased at the service desk.
