Melbourne Coastrek 2020 - 60km

My Activity Tracking


My target 60kms

I’m hiking 60km in a day on Melbourne's Coastrek!

On Friday 30 October, I'll be hiking 60km in a day to raise funds for Beyond Blue.

As ambassador for the Melbourne Coastrek event, this is a cause that is close to my heart. Anyone who's read my book 'Bewildered' will know that I suffered crippling anxiety before a 3,000km hike down the length of New Zealand healed me.

Now the act of walking again has the potential to help the three million people in Australia who are currently living with anxiety and depression. On average, eight people take their lives every day in Australia. Funds raised from this event help Beyond Blue keep up with demand for its 24/7 Support Service and contribute to the development and delivery of services, programs, resources and campaigns to tackle anxiety, depression and suicide.

The furthest I've ever walked in a day is 40km so this'll be a challenge for me! Every donation helps and makes a significant impact to mental health and wellbeing in Australia, so thank you for your generosity.

Thank you to my Sponsors
