‘Burleigh Keg Jump’ Celebrates Craft Beer & Skateboarding
In its third and biggest year yet, the hugely popular Burleigh Keg Jump is back, taking over Burleigh Brewing Taphouse on Friday June 24 for a celebration of craft beer and skateboarding. Burleigh Keg Jump will host street skateboarders from around the country who are recognised by the industry, as elite-level athletes who will compete for a massive prize pool valued at $9,000. The task is simple – the winning skateboarder must clear and land over the most number of Burleigh beer kegs on the night to score the renowned Burleigh Golden Growler Trophy! Burleigh Keg Jump will feature live music, Burleigh Eats food and world-class Burleigh craft beer, followed by an afterparty! Tickets to the Burleigh Keg Jump event are $20 and include a Burleigh Brewing craft beer on arrival. Thirsty punters can buy tickets via the oztix website.
ReachOut Partners with Doritos to Encourage Young People to Discuss Mental Health
Doritos limited-edition Bold BBQ flavour will hit Australian shelves over the next 3 months and in collaboration with mental health organisation, ReachOut, a QR code is featured on the new packs (and the entire range) encouraging Aussies to visit the online quiz to check in with themselves and their mental health. This move comes off the back of a new survey that revealed that 3 out of 5 Aussies say a phrase such as ‘I’m Fine’ up to 10 times a week (over 40 times a month, over 520 times a year) to deflect how they are really feeling. The data in its entirety speaks to a growing youth mental health crisis and the need to encourage young Aussies to check in with themselves, seek help if they feel they need it and where they can go to do that.

Panadol Rewards Selfless Aussies Going Above and Beyond
Returning for a second year, the Panadol Care Collective recognises and rewards selfless Aussies who have gone above and beyond to care for others and their community. The Panadol team is calling for all Australians to nominate themselves, or a deserving individual who has gone above and beyond to care for others. For example, Rachel Clancy founded Hope In A Suitcase, an organization that provides children entering the foster care system with a suitcase full of belongings that they can call their own.
Following the success of the 2021 Panadol Care Collective, the Panadol team is expanding this year’s mission, asking Australians across the country to nominate extraordinary stories of care in their community. In 2022, the Panadol team will recognise the most inspiring stories of care by rewarding deserving Aussies with a share in $135,000 worth of individual and community care packages. Additionally, this year’s campaign will have a special category to allow for nominations for those under 18 years of age. Head over to the Panadol website to nominate yourself or someone you know now.
