Sydney Coastrek 2020 - 30km

I’m taking on Sydney Coastrek!

On Friday 27 March, I'll be taking part in Sydney 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

We can all appear strong, but at times being strong is hard...

How are you today? Good. Are you really?

Most of the time we automatically reply 'good' and put on a brave happy face because that is what is expected. Life is too busy to be weighed down with difficulties so we push through it, push it down and keep adding more and more to our already overloaded days. 

 

There are times I find that I am so overloaded with information/noise/ thoughts & emotions coming in that I cant function. My head feels like its going to explode and I cant receive or process any more information. I know Im not the only one and even though I am not clinically depressed, I have days where I feel depressed, sad, overloaded, unworthy and just tired. 

I am lucky though as I have family and friends who I can count on to snap me out of my funk. I love my life, my family and my friends and am thankful each day that I am blessed with them. This is not the case for everyone though. There are so many people who struggle deeper and deeeper into depression because they do not have support.

So on 27th March 2020 I will be walking 30kms from Curl Curl to Mossman with 3 fabulously strong women. I am grateful that these crazy, strong, kind and inspirational, women, Siobhan, Sue and Jo got me involved in this event. Earlier this year we raised over $2000 for the Fred Hollows Foundation and for this next walk we are rainsing funds for Beyond Blue. 

Beyond Blue is about helping all Australians achieve their best possible mental health. We all need help at times dont we? Some more than others. Please help us to achieve our goal and donate to support this great cause.

I am grateful for so many things and to be able to give back to help others who are doing it tough or are at the brink feels rewarding. I just hope that our small efforts can contribute to the greater effort of everyone taking part in this walk. 

Being strong is being honest and asking for help when you need it.

Being strong is about letting people see you.

Being strong is about being there for others, helping them overcome their difficulties.

Being strong is about being kind and even having a good cry.

Here is to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

With love Julie.
