Perfect day for Awareness Day event in Fremantle, Western Australia

More than 160 members from across the Perth metropolitan area met together on Sunday 21 October for a highly successful Awareness Day event in the historic Kings Square area in the port city of Fremantle, Western Australia.

The celebration commenced with messages of best wishes for the event by invited guests Ms Melissa Parke, MP Federal member for Fremantle, and Professor Rob Donovan,  Principal of the Act Belong Commit Campaign, which is a community-based campaign that encourages people to take action to improve their mental health and wellbeing. The Tai Chi demonstration  attracted many passing onlookers on what was a wonderful sunny day enjoyed by all those who attended. The event was closed by the Fremantle Mayor Brad Petit who thanked us for our role in helping to build a healthier community.

Coincidentally, Fremantle is also where Taoist Tai Chi™ internal arts of health were first taught in Australia in 1980.  Master Moy Lin-shin, founder of the Taoist Tai Chi Society and Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, annually visited Fremantle for workshops for over a decade from about 1986 onwards.
