My Story

Coastrek Challenge - trekking 60km for mental health

I have entered the Coastrek team trekking challenge and will be walking 60km on Friday 27 March to raise funds for Beyond Blue to support mental health in Australia. I am part of an awesome team of women - "Coastwrecks" :)

Right now, over one million people in Australia have depression and more than two million are experiencing anxiety. On average, eight people take their lives every day in Australia.

It's a difficult time to fundraise with so many people supporting the current bush fire crisis, and rightly so - it's devastating.  However, the long term recovery of those affected - those who've lost everything, the firefighters, those caring for injured animals, those communities financially affected by the loss of tourism - they can all benefit from the services of Beyond Blue Blue. 

The Beyond Blue Support Service will continue to be a vital source of support and information for anyone who needs it, including those affected by bush fires, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We are training hard to make sure we are up to the challenge, and every weekend between now and then will involve endurance training walks ranging from 15 to 47km.

Please consider sponsoring my trek and support my efforts to make a difference to mental health in Australia.

Funds raised will support Beyond Blue's vision of every person in Australia achieving their best possible mental health.

Thanks for your support - it is truly appreciated,

Amanda
