Sydney Coastrek 2020 - 30km

We're taking on Sydney Coastrek!

We are 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.

We did it!


Sydney Coastrek Event Day: Fri 4 Sep

Braving the dreary, rainy weather over 6 hours was not exactly how we expected our Coastrek Charity Walk would go down, but 31.6 kilometres and 42,935 steps later we did it! 

We walked the 7 Bridges Loop; and though it was not the anticipated hike along Sydney's coast with hundreds of other budding Coastrekkers, completing the 30km distance was still a challenge in itself. (Our legs will surely feel it tomorrow!) 

But it was all worth the effort where we managed to raise more than $1.8K for BeyondBlue - woohoo! We could not have done it without your support – through your donations as well as through your kind and motivating messages, so a BIG thank you <3

There's still time to donate, so if you would like to shout us a beer in celebration of our effort, feel free to throw some cash towards this great charity cause instead (just hit that donate button!). Every $ counts and it'll help get us over the line of our $2K fundraising goal Xx

Where are your donations going?
Funds raised go towards Beyond Blue's 24/7 Support Service, which provide counselling, mental health information and referrals to anyone in Australia via telephone and email 24/7, and web chat.

During 2017–18, people contacted Beyond Blue’s Support Service 168,864 times via phone, web chat and email. The demand for this service increases every year, and in 2020 Beyond Blue expect to be contacted over 215,000 times.

It also helps make their support materials available to order free of charge so Australians can access mental health information when they need it the most.

And a special shout out
We would also like to thank our workplace, World Expeditions (worldexpeditions.com), who kindly sponsored us to take on this charity challenge. If you're thinking of taking on your own BIG adventure with a small footprint, check them out for active travel inspiration – and while you're there, why not give them a follow on social or sign up to their eNewsletter? ;)

Thanks again all! We hope we inspired you to hit your outdoor trails, as well as reminded you to check in on your loved ones to make sure they're okay. A little conversation can go a long way.

Sending BIG virtual hugs,

- Team BIG Adventures

Coastrek Postponed: New date TBC

Hi all,

We are so close to reaching our fundraising goal and we couldn't have achieved such an amazing result without your support – a BIG thank you to those that have generously donated to make a difference towards mental health in Australia!

Due to the COVID-19 events which have unfolded over the past weeks, the Sydney Coastrek event has been postponed to a later date. We'll keep you posted on the new date for the charity trek.

The current times are definitely surreal and we hope everyone is keeping fit and looking after their well-being in their own way – it's so important considering the new challenges we are facing.

Remember, tough times pass, but we are all in this together.

Sending BIG virtual hugs your way,
Team BIG Adventures Xx

P.S. There is still time to make a donation. Given current events, Beyond Blue’s 24/7 Support Service will be needed more than ever before, so spare some change if possible. Your support is truly appreciated.

Thank you to our Sponsors
