HALT has just been handed the keys to a Toyota HiLux, thanks to Castlemaine, Bendigo and Maryborough Toyota!

Jez is grateful for the opportunity to hit the road in the new HALT-branded HiLux as he travels hundreds of kilometres across the state to encourage tradies, farmers, apprentices, sporting clubs, men’s sheds, businesses and the community to look after their mental health and wellbeing.

“Suicide is the leading cause of death for men aged 15 to 44,” said Jeremy. “HALT aims to raise awareness of support options and break through the stigma attached to mental health by talking about the tough stuff and providing links to services that can help. The HALT HiLux will be travelling up and down the highways to reach as many people possible”.

Castlemaine Toyota New Car Sales Manager Alex DeAraugo is one of over 150 team members of the Castlemaine, Bendigo and Maryborough Toyota dealerships, and HALT’s first major business sponsor. “It is important to us to support our local community wherever we can. We are proud to provide HALT with Australia’s number one selling vehicle to assist with travel throughout the region and congratulate them on the vital information they provide through the ‘Save Your Bacon’ Brekkies.”

HALT presents ‘Save Your Bacon’ Brekkies and ‘How to Have a Tough Conversation’ sessions across the region. Bookings can be made by contacting us here.

Castlemaine ToyotaBendigo Toyota and Maryborough Toyota are incredibly proud to partner with HALT. This partnership is the first of its kind between the three dealerships and it fits well with our Toyota demographic. Tradies make up a huge part of our Toyota network so it was a no-brainer to team up with HALT. We hope the HALT HiLux helps Jeremy and the team continue their great work and look forward to seeing it at many ‘Save Your Bacon’ Brekkies soon.”
