We are a rallied group of locals who believe that healthy individuals and families is what make for a resilient, generous and happy community. We believe that our ability to empower others starts with our personal wellness. So, we decided to volunteer our own talent and time to create a sustainable annual festival that benefits the community for the longer term.
The MY Mount Eliza festival is the brainchild of Mt Eliza local
Geoff Nyssen who, in 2014 at the age of 40, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a terminal blood cancer. With this devastating circumstance, Geoff has found a way forward – trumping adversity with empowerment and inspiring and rallying others along the way to live well. The MY Mount Eliza Festival is designed to be a gift to Mt Eliza and will boast the values that Geoff and the MY Mount Eliza committee believe form the foundation for an engaged and resilient community.
