Rebecca Brown walked 60km and raised over $9,000 for beyond Blue with her team Beyond Bluebirds. This is a cause close to her heart after having lost her father in 2019 and then her brother 2 years later to suicide.
“Mental Health has always been something I felt strongly about and understood, however, I never quite appreciated the extent to which it could control someone, the importance of it, or the impact unhealthy mental health can have on someone until I experienced it first hand”
Rebecca wants to see mental health talked about more freely in everyday conversation, like cancer or broken limbs or Covid-19.
She walked the first 30km for her dad and then the other 30km for her brother.
