  Growing up is tough enough. I can’t imagine how challenging it would be for kids to grow up in the age of social media.

That is why reminding our younger generation to just be kind is so important.

Life Ed Queensland’s, Healthy Harold Hundred is an amazing way to encourage kids and adults to step away from their devices, get active and do something that will benefit both their mindset and physical being. 

Bec Hardgrave is a qualified fitness and health coach. 

Bec recently graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce and works in a Big Four accounting firm in Brisbane. Bec is also a qualified health coach and spends her spare time encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.

She is passionate about creating easy, delicious recipes and food hacks which have grown her social presence to over 170,000 people. She has released two online recipe eBooks: ‘Fit and Full’ and ‘Healthy Holiday Hacks’ which are available online on her website: bechardgrave.com

  There is no place in life for bullying or violence so that’s why my family and I are taking Life Education Queensland’s Healthy Harold Hundred challenge. Join me and my family this June as together we can make a real difference.

I’m a mother, an Olympian and motivational speaker, I run energy health workshops and can see the strain added screen time and cyber bullying has placed on the mental health of many Australians.

I’m a big believer in disconnecting to reconnect by putting self-care and self -worth first to find balance and avoid burnout. I’m taking the challenge along with my family to support an incredible cause after witnessing the terrible pain the victims of bullying endure.

Diversity is our key to getting moving and achieving goals so as a family we are pledging to do 300km, we will swim, run, bike ride, scoot, skate board, paddle boards, kayak, walk but most importantly raise awareness to break the cycle of bullying and violence in Queensland.

Brooke Hanson OLY OAM, an Olympic Gold and Silver Medallist empowers people to live a purpose driven life, motivating individuals and inspiring organisations to achieve greatness.

  As a father of four, and now, grandfather as well, I know that the journey to adulthood can have its ups and downs.

As parents, we do our best, but we can’t be there every minute of every day. The work that Life Ed does in teaching kids about making good choices for life, whether that’s around drugs, alcohol, eating well, cybersafety, and learning about respect for self and others, is a big help to parents.

Bullying is a real downer for kids, and that’s why I’m here to support this year’s Healthy Harold Hundred.  

Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest ever ruckmen.

The former Australian rules footballer played for the St Kilda Football Club, Hawthorn, and Sydney Swans. He finished his career having played 291 games in the AFL. He was twice named Best and Fairest and he’s a three-time All Australian. Spida co-hosts the Gold Coast's 92.5 Triple M Breakfast show with Ali Plath and Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan.

Spida and his wife Sheree own the travel TV show The Great Australian Doorstep, which sees them journey around Australia and the world by motorhome, showing viewers what to see and do in smaller towns. It airs on 7two in Australia as well as on the iTunes store and is the only Australian travel TV show to air in mainland China. They also own their travel radio show of the same name, which airs on 62 stations around Australia on a Saturday and Sunday morning.

Spida competed in the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars and says he’s proud to hold the record for the ‘Worst Ever Contestant’, being the first competitor to be eliminated in that series.

Spida helps dozens of charities and sporting clubs around the country by hosting events and helping to raise funds and awareness.

  As a father of six, and founder of Happy Families, I believe there’s no job more important than raising happy healthy children. That’s why I’m proud to support Life Education Queensland, a charity that’s all about empowering children to make safe and healthy choices through education.

This year, I’m getting behind their new fundraising campaign the Healthy Harold Hundred – to help stop bullying and violence. As parents we need to do our best to be good role models, and as a society, we have to keep having conversations about respect, consent, kindness and tolerance – those values and foundations are so important for young people.

He is sought after for his expertise in family life, relationships, emotional wellbeing and resilience; and is the founder of ‘Happy Families’ which provides a suite of resources, webinars and support to families across Australia and the world.

Dr Coulson earned his PhD in Positive Psychology. He holds an Honorary Fellowship at the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education in the Centre for Positive Psychology, and he is a Senior Associate at the Positive Psychology Institute.

   Parenting can be pretty tough going, especially in this digital age. Raising happy, healthy, kind and resilient children is my greatest hope... (and I know that's much easier said than done!)

That's why Life Education programs have always resonated with me. They're age appropriate, engaging, and give our kids invaluable lessons on everything from bullying to social media and fostering positive relationships. You know the saying: "it takes a village."

If parents, schools and the Life Education community can keep working together, I believe, we have the best chance of bringing up well-balanced children.
