Melbourne Coastrek 2021 - 30km

I’m taking on Melbourne Coastrek!

On Friday 22 May, I'll be taking part in Melbourne Coastrek, the ultimate team trekking and fundraising challenge, proudly supporting Beyond Blue.

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

Every donation helps and makes a significant impact to mental health and wellbeing in Australia, so thank you for your generosity.

My Story

30km hike on the Mornington Peninsula with 3M Oral Care work colleagues - Team Forever Young

Mornington Peninsula here we come! Our Forever Young team will be comprised of 4 colleagues from 3M Oral Care. The 3 ladies are all Dental Product Specialists, and the only male in our team, Stephen is married to Heike and in Scientific Affairs for Oral Care.  You could say he looks after us - an understatement because he actually sorts out all the technical questions I'm asked and unable to answer.

Those of you who know Stephen may know that he is capable of speaking even more than I do - no mean feat! The speaking isn't the problem - Stephen is also incredibly funny and I only hope we manage to get over the starting line because we will not be pushing him in a wheelchair! We’ll probably not be the fastest team on the day, but we'll more than likely be the team that 😂 and giggled most of the way!

I love walking and Beyond Blue is particularly close to my heart.  I'm a mother to fraternal twin boys of 25. Although my own boys have not experienced any mental health issues to date, they are sadly in the age group (18 to 28) with the highest suicide rate in Australia.

I do hope you'll enjoy following our team and please know that whatever amount you may decide to donate will be sincerely appreciated, is tax deductible and will be going to an extremely worthy cause.

Take care


Thank you to my Sponsors
