Live4Life 2014 Launched!

What an awesome day to kick off the Live4Life program for 2014! Over 550 young people from across the Macedon Ranges Shire gathered at host school Sacred Heart College in Kyneton to Launch the program, and enjoyed enterainment from Issac & Jimmy, Flaxxon and Mumblr, as well as a Laughter Yoga Session with Merv Neal.

The day could not have happened withour the generous support of our community sponsors: Rotary Club of Kyneton, Organs Coaches, The Pizza and Wine Club, Watts Fresh - Kyneton, Romsey Fresh Wholesale, Bakers Delight - Kyneton, Coles Gisborne, Coles Woodend, Country Cobb Bakery - Kyneton.

And a special thanks to Sacred Heart College, Kyneton for hosting the event and a drizzly autumn day.

Last but not least, the Live4Life Crew for running the show and making the day so much fun, and to all the schools and Year 8 students who joined in and had ball while learning some really positive messages about youth mental health.

Looking forward to the year ahead in Live4Life 2014!

The Live4Life Crew has just returned from YMCA Lady Northcote Camp outside of Bacchus Marsh.

This Leadership Camp included 35 young people from Music in the Sticks, Youth Ambassadors Program and Live4Live Crew - all of which run out of the Youth Development Unit at Macedon Ranges Shire Council.

It was 3 days jam packed with activities, games, program planning, leadership skills and reaching new heights.

A massive congrats and thank you must be said to all the Crew and young people who attended the Leadership Camp as they rose to every challenge presented to them and had a heap of fun in the process!
