My Story

Final week

Sunday 27th Dec
Heading into week 4 of the challenge and I'm surprised at just how much my fitness and sense of well-being has improved over the past few weeks. I would've laughed if anyone had suggested that I would actually run at parkrun for example yet I did that yesterday. And I'm stoked at the support I've received from friends and family. Raising money for Beyond Blue means a lot to me. Mental illness affects so many and I've been fortunate to receive the best care... starting with the use of the beyond blue website. I was pretty scared and desperate back in 2013 when I went looking to Beyond Blue for support and information. Thanks to the website I was empowered to seek help through doing a quiz to assess my mental health and requesting a long appointment with the GP knowing that I would request a mental health plan. It's been a long and difficult journey since then. But now it feels good to think that I'm supporting an organisation that helped me when I was feeling desperate. And that maybe others will also be empowered to take charge of their mental health, recover and find joy like I have. Thanks Beyond Blue and thanks to all of my sponsors. You have all helped in so many ways and I hope others benefit from the funds raised. 

Thank you to my Sponsors

I finally got off my derrière and sponsored you. A dollar for every km you did on Sunday. I thought I’d give you a break for being 100m short and round it up! 🤣
