We're taking on Adelaide Coastrek!
We are taking part in Adelaide 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?

Thank you to all our supporters
We were very lucky and the weather stayed clear all day. We started with a walk around the gorgeous Granite Island Recreation Park with its cute sculptures..and then headed onto the divine coast to Goolwa.
Coffee at Port Elliott at about the 10km mark and some extra band aids being applied... then sandwiches, fruit and Gatorade at the 17km Luv Stop.
As we came off the beach, we were told 4.5kms to go and after stuffing our faces with BB's we had the energy to press on.
After a lovely walk along the waterfront, being cheered on by passers by, we crossed the finish line after about 6 hours.
As we drove home, the rain started and we thanked Mother Nature for looking after us.
The team raised over $4,600 for Beyond Blue which is amazing.
The rest of the weekend was spent dining at Coriole in the McLaren Vale, chasing rainbows, reading by our wood fire and chatting.
Training Walk #2 - 12.5kms
This time we attempted to walk Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. Kate Slee flew in from Wodonga, and luckily it was a gorgeous day. We loved walking around the Eastern Suburbs and not getting lost thanks to Jen's street smarts. Kate peeled off at Rose Bay to make it to her soccer game, and we made it to Vaucluse before realising we wouldn't make lunch at Watsons Bay without the help of an Uber.
Jugs of Pimms, and Fish and Chips at Doyles made it all worthwhile.
Next walk is 20kms
Training Walk #1 - 7kms
In April we did our first team training walk around Manly Dam - a great day and a lovely walk to get started.
Backpacks were organised, socks were pulled up and the best part was lunch on VanLan's new verandah
