Help me raise $1,000 for beyondblue!

A donation to beyondblue makes a difference to the wellbeing of people in Australia.

Tell me to 'Take a Hike'!

Posted by Sky, Tuesday 26th Jun

I'm sure most of you who know and love me and one point or another have wanted to tell me  to 'Take a Hike'!

Now is your chance - but you need to put some money where your mouth is!   Plus this week is End of Financial Year so a great time to make a tax deductable donation

I'm walking 30km to help raise the profile of Mental Health and dollars for beyondblue. What is a KM worth? Maybe 50c for each of the 30kms? Or swing for $1 per km?

I'm taking on this challenge to raise funds for beyondblue to support mental health and wellbeing in Australia.

Did you know that three million people in Australia are living with anxiety and depression?

Mental wellbeing is an issue very close to my heart! I've experienced several debilitating episodes of anxiety in my 30's. Thanks to professional help and significant support from family, friends and my workplaces I've built a strong toolkit to manage my anxiety.  I know from personal experience how valuable access to professional assistance is early on.

Like many people my extended family has been touched by depression and suicide. Its important to build a culture where everyone can share if they aren't feeling ok. Beyond Blue is a really important part of this!

Getting professional help in the regions like my home town of Port Lincoln is hard. People can wait several months to get an appointment with a counsellor. We need to support organisations that can bridge this gap!

Please sponsor me as I take on this challenge to make a difference to those experiencing anxiety or depression.

Every donation helps and makes a significant impact to mental health in Australia, so thank you for your generosity. A tax-deductible receipt will be emailed to you immediately once you complete your donation.

I’m taking on Adelaide Coastrek!

As someone who doesn't like walking, I know how tough 30km will be :) but this is a cause close to both our hearts, so I wish you the best of luck with this challenge. Well done!
