Melbourne Coastrek 2020 - 30km

I’m taking on Melbourne Coastrek!

On Friday 22 May, I'll be taking part in Melbourne Coastrek, walking 30kms to Point Nepean along the Mornington Peninsula coastline with 3 of my life-long best friends, raising funds for Beyond Blue.

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

And as we wait for Australia's worst ever bushfire season to end, those already affected begin to get back on their feet, the immediate need for assistance will become a long-term recovery effort.

Individuals, communities and first responders impacted by the fires are likely to seek support and advice for mental health concerns relating to loss, grief and trauma.

During this time, the Beyond Blue Support Service will continue to be a vital source of support and information for anyone who needs it, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We know that disasters such as these, which remain in Australia’s collective consciousness for a prolonged period, leads to an increase in calls to our Support Service. 

Your donation will ensure everyone calling the Support Service can talk to a mental health professional for free, and be pointed in the right direction for ongoing support to adjust to life following the fires.

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