Canberra Coastrek 2020

Lets turn it around

For several years I have suffered from anxiety and depression.  It is the kind of illness that is hard to shake, and often goes unseen or presents in weird ways.  

I am so excited to be doing the Coastrek walk this year to help raise funds for Beyond Blue.  They are a great organisation, and offer fabulous support services to people like me.  

As soon as I saw the ad for the walk, I knew I had to join in. A 10km walk isn't something that I generally include in my everyday life, so I thought it'd be a good, achievable challenge.  Something to help motivate me to add more gentle movement into my days.  

What appeals most about the walk though, is that I'll be doing it with three other wonderful women, who throughout the years have inspired me in different ways.  Renee, Trudi and Katherine have all been an incredible support to me over the past decade and I am so grateful to be able to share this experience with them.  I can't wait to get spend time with you all getting ready for, and completing this walk.  


I'm taking on Canberra Coastrek!

I'm taking part in Canberra Coastrek, 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.
