The Asfours will be running for a cause when they hit the treadmill this Friday in a 24-hour nationwide fundraising challenge, to raise awareness of mental health and the RUOK message.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour, wife Sally and son Elias, will run for 15 minutes, along with other participants, as part of Tread as One being organised by Anytime Fitness.

Mayor Asfour has been a regular supporter of the RUOK campaign.

"Mental illness can take many forms, can often go unrecognised and be hidden from family and friends," he said.

"One in five Australians experience a mental illness at some stage in their lives, which is more than enough motivation for me to put my joggers on and run for 15 minutes.

"I hope, through my family’s participation, we can raise awareness of mental health and I encourage others to join the challenge."

Mrs Asfour said crossing paths with many people with mental health issues was the driving force behind her taking part.

"I think it's an important social matter that is kept under wraps for fear of looking weak, especially in our ethnic communities where a man shouldn't cry or show emotions," she said.

"Asking someone RUOK might mean the difference between life and death."

Seven-year-old Elias is excited about being involved.

"I want people to know everything is okay. I want them to know how important it is to tell people if they’re going through something to ask for help," he said.

For a number of years, Council has supported mental health by connecting the community with support networks and championed Mental Health Month (October) which includes activities like free anxiety workshops, yoga sessions and the screening of movies about mental health.

Tread for One will start on Friday 31 May at 3pm and finish on Saturday 1 June at 3pm, with the Asfours taking up the challenge from 4-4.45pm at Anytime Fitness in Greenacre.
