The inaugural Trek of all Trades vehicle convoy will be held on 10 September 2023 to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day.
The trek is in honour of Joshua Clarke, a local Canberra boy who lost his life to suicide in 2021. This tradie trek is an opportunity to reflect on the lives lost to suicide as well as connecting, having important conversations, continuing to break the stigma surrounding suicide.
The “Trek of all Trades” vehicle convoy will kick off from Hall on Victoria St near the show ground at 10 am and weave its way through the streets of Canberra, culminating at the picturesque Casuarina Sands, Cotter Road. Here, participants can enjoy a family picnic and BBQ, while engaging in friendly outdoor activities like touch rugby and cricket.
The event is for anyone to join with a focus on our tradies. So bring your ute. Bring your trailer and come along for a day of reflection and fun.
OzHelp will be hosting the BBQ and Standby Support after Suicide will be available to provide information on the wonderful services they provide.

We’re looking forward to sharing this special event with you.
We all have a role to play, so let’s get together to reduce the stigma of mental health and raise awareness of suicide.
