Sons of the West

Graduates from the Sons of the West program

This free men's health program aims to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of men living, working or recreating in the City of Maribyrnong. Each week the program includes one hour of health education followed by one hour of physical activity, suitable for all fitness levels and abilities.

Stay tuned for updates about the program returning in 2021

The 2020 program was successfully delivered online to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak. Next year, Maribyrnong City Council and the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation hope to bring back the full face-to-face program, if it is safe to do so and permitted by State Government restrictions.

Some of the topics covered in the health education workshops include:

  • nutrition

  • mental fitness
  • cultural diversity
  • gender equity
  • cancer prevention
