What is the Mind Games?

The Mind Games Race for Research is a fun, action-packed event to raise money for mental health research. Fifty corporate teams of five people will be put through their paces in 10 fun challenges.

Teams must solve the challenge or complete the task before they can move on to the next one. The team that can out-smart and out-race its competitors will win. The Mind Games Race for Research is not a fitness challenge, but it will exercise minds. It’s a test of general skills, creativity and above all, team work.

Why should you join?

Tasmania is already the best place to live. We want it to be the best place to work too. Each year, one in five Australians experience mental illness. Our work environments play an important role in helping people to sustain good mental health and to recover from illness. Mentally unhealthy workplaces cause harm and cost the economy.

The Mind Games Race for Research will build and promote mental health at work while raising money for critical research into the prevention and treatment of mental health problems. Profits raised this year, will once again fund research into workplace mental health at the Tasmanian-based Menzies Institute for Medical Research.

Who is it for?

The Mind Games Event is being run in Hobart, Tasmania. Any workplace anywhere is Australia can register a team (or three!). Before the challenges kick off, participants and sponsors will gather at a networking event which is a part of your registration fee. This gives an opportunity to network with likeminded businesses and reinforce the messages around mental health and workplace wellness while building an atmosphere of excitement. The Mind Games race day will conclude with the presentation of awards, speeches and acknowledgments. We’ll be promoting all businesses in the lead up and event day’s activities via social media.

Who are the creators?

The Mind Games Race for Research is the brainchild of Sherri Ring from Energy Health, a team-building and workplace wellness specialist company. Sherri has brought together a group of volunteers with diverse skills, a passion for the cause and a desire to make their community a better place to live and work.

Sherri is working together with Leishman Associates, Before Creative and Soda Projects to deliver a very unique and professional team building experience that will be hard to forget!

Who is the charity?

The University of Tasmania’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research (Menzies) is one of Australia’s leading health and medical institutes. Drawing on uniquedata resources and more than 25 years of community participation and population health research, Menzies’ extensive international collaborations enable local discoveries to positively contribute to global health improvement. This year, profits raised through The Mind Games Race for Research event will be used to support mental health research at Menzies.
