Grab Life By The Balls Birthday BBQ

Grab Life By The Balls founder Sam Parker has invited people to break the record for the longest barbecue as the group celebrates its three year-anniversary on November 29, starting at 6.30am.

He says Australia should hold the record - thought to be established by Mexico - and will develop the campaign to raise awareness about men's mental health and the rate of male suicide in Australia. 

His stretch goal is to have one million people having a barbecue on Father's Day 2020. 

"We're looking at following in the footsteps of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea by registering to have different barbecues across Australia," he told the Sunshine Coast Daily. 

Grab Life By The Balls holds regular beach barbecues every Friday. 

"Rather than 6 out of 8 suicides being men it's 4 out of 5 men on the Sunshine Coast, it's pretty horrendous," he told Seven News. 

"Everyone has their ups and downs and it's easier sometimes if you've got some mates to help out, and that's where we come in."

"I found a place that I could just have a chat," said one group member. 

A full list of the group's events can be found here. 

The 29 November anniversary breakfast will take place at the public bbq in between The Loo With A View and The Mooloolaba Surf Club and if it's a bit rainy: public bbqs at Arthur Parkyn Park (the bbqs between The caravan park and the Mooloolaba Surf Club).
