Thank a First Responder Day | Melbourne

June 8 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm


If no registration form appears on this page, the activity is at capacity. You can register for the waitlist by emailing us at activities@fortemaustralia.org.au.

First Responders, join us to celebrate Thank a First Responder Day, where we thank you on behalf of the community, for dedicating your lives to helping others and keeping us safe.

Start the day with a learn to surf lesson –  designed for beginners and taught by an experienced coach, plus surfing time to paddle out and catch waves. For those who know how to surf and want to practice their skills, there is a play in the bays option available too. Even if first responders are not participating in the surfing, you can still visit and enjoy free lunch and coffee between 10am and 2pm.

This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check out Who We Serve here). Register individually, or with up to one other adult (your partner, family member or someone from your inner circle). Encourage a first responder colleague to register too.

Fortem is an official partner of The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing – connect, be active, keep learning, be present, and help others. The 5 Ways are integrated into all our activities, events, and programs to highlight the benefits of incorporating simple lifestyle changes to your day-to-day.
