The team at Shepparton’s Koryo Taekwondo knows the importance of looking after mind and body.
This Sunday, the martial arts centre will donate all the proceeds of its annual GV’s Biggest Indoor Boot Camp to headspace Shepparton.
Head instructor Sammy Rachele encouraged people to participate in the two-hour workout.
‘‘It’s for all ages and all abilities,’’ Mr Rachele said.
‘‘If one person does 10 reps and another does five, it doesn’t matter as it’s not a competition.’’
Mr Rachele said he decided to partner with headspace after hearing about its positive role in the community.
‘‘Anything we can do to help them is a good thing,’’ he said.
Headspace general manager Caroline French said she was pleased Mr Rachele had chosen to support the youth mental health organisation.
‘‘What we are wanting the money to go to is to fund some sort of initiative to help young people recovering from drugs and alcohol,’’ Ms French said.
‘‘There are some great things about those young people getting active again and meeting new people.’’
