Blokes’ Day Out to turn up focus on men’s health issues

March 10, 2014 by  

Sandown Racecourse at Springvale, Victoria, is soon to host the inaugural Blokes’ Day Out.

The event is being organised by the Australian Street Rod Federation (ASRF) to shine a light on men’s health issues and the importance of getting regular check-ups.

Organisers expect the Blokes’ Day Out to attract up to 10,000 people and, as an added incentive for men to attend, the displays will include more than 1,000 bikes and 2,000 cars.

The ASRF’s Steve Bridges said the main aim was to get as many men through the gates as possible and provide them with a great day out, as well as access to health service providers who specialise in men’s issues, so guys could get their health checked at the same time.

Those attending would also be encouraged to register as organ, tissue and blood donors to help others.

Fun activities designed to appeal to all blokes have been included on the entertainment program, which ranges from archery, laser games, cycling, sumo wrestling and live music to a mechanical bucking bull.

Inspirational events such as this are regularly held at venues such as Sandown Racecourse, where flyer printing is a popular source of marketing in the local area.

It is hoped the ASRF’s Blokes’ Day Out, which is scheduled for March 23rd, will become a national event in the future. Entry is just $5 and gates open at 10am. Proceeds of the day will assist men’s health service providers.
