About The Event
**Mackay Broken to Brilliant Walk - Connecting Hearts, Healing Souls**
Join us on the 3rd Saturday of every month for the Mackay Broken to Brilliant Walk, which combines the beauty of outdoor walking with a focus on gratitude and building social connections. We gather at the Mackay Botanical Gardens Cafe, located at 9 Lagoon Street, West Mackay, at 8 am. After a warm welcome, we embark on a walk along one of the many scenic paths within the gardens.
Our walk is more than just physical exercise; it's a celebration of the small joys in life and an opportunity to foster respectful relationships while taking a stand against Domestic Violence. As we walk through the beautiful gardens, we take a moment to appreciate the blessings in our lives and practice gratitude, which has been proven to increase happiness and reduce depression.
After the walk, we gather back at the cafe to enjoy a cuppa and have a chat. The Mackay Broken to Brilliant Walk offers a safe and supportive environment for domestic violence victims- survivors-thrivers, families, friends, and community members to connect with one another. Our diverse group creates a strong support network, ensuring that no one feels isolated on their journey towards healing and growth.
Studies have shown that outdoor walking groups contribute to reduced blood pressure, total cholesterol, and the risk of depression. By coming together and sharing our experiences, we reduce social isolation and strengthen our sense of belonging and connectedness.
If you're looking for a meaningful way to connect with others, experience the healing power of nature, and embrace gratitude in your life, the Mackay Broken to Brilliant Walk is the perfect opportunity. Whether you're seeking solace, support, or simply a delightful morning in the company of kindred spirits, we welcome you to join our walking group.
