Celebrating 10 years of Extremely Long Lunches!

Saturday 20th August 2016 @ Peninsula, Shed 14, 161 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands.

The annual Extremely Long Lunch is the cornerstone event on the ONE IN FIVE fundraising calendar. This year is an extremely special one for us, because we are celebrating 10 years of Extremely Long Lunches. That’s 10 years of valuable fundraising for research into mental health and 10 years of extreme fun!

This year’s lunch will have all the great food, wine, entertainment, auctions and socialising you have come to expect at the Extremely Long Lunch plus the extreme excitement of sharing in this important milestone.

We are also on the lookout for generous donors who may be interested in donating raffle prizes or becoming event sponsors. This is a fabulous opportunity to spruik your stuff while supporting a great cause. Please contact our events team.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you. It’s going to be extreme. 

Tickets include 4 hours of food, drinks and entertainment:
$135 per person or $1350 for a table of 10.



The Extreme Challenge is a fundraising crusade for mental illness research. 

In its 11th year, the Extreme Challenge has seen participants run marathons, hike the kokoda trail and challenge themselves to raise vital funds for mental illness. All money donated goes to our projects at The Florey Institue of Neuroschience to help us find better treatments and cures for bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety and suicide.

We are always looking to partner with potential sponsors. If you would like to find out how you can help, please email us: extremechallenge@oneinfive.com.au  

The Extreme Challenge specifically aims to highlight the benefits of regular exercise for mental health and encourages the participation of people living with a mental illness.


This year we are partnering with Surf Coast Century to deliver an epic 100km ultra-marathon!

Enjoy breathtaking surf coast views,  register today and raise vital funds for mental illness research.
50km and 100km ultra marathon is perfect for those seeking a challenging yet achievable course. Do it in a relay team of four, three  or two, or do the entire 100km solo!
