My Story

Why Coastrek and What it means to me

I have recently been given the opportunity to participate in the amazing 30KM Coastrek to raise money for BeyondBlue. Why I hear you ask? For a while now I have been wanting to do something that gives back to the amazing country I call home.

I work for a company that the majority without a doubt is made up of beautiful strong women. And when WomenWise and Healthwise sent out the email to call for participants to participate in this amazing event. What better way to give back than too get up, get active in Nature and get out there than walking the Beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.

For those of you who know me now, It would seem that I have always been a confident and positive individual. However this has not always been the case. 

For many years I battled with depression and anxiety, like many of us do. Coming close to the edge many times over, needless to say I know how dark life can get. I have known and lost people too this silent but deadly illness that quite often in this modern world of hyper-connectivity we often feel like alone and disconnected. 

With over 3 million people in Australia suffering from this terrible illness, If I can help just one person by walking a measly 30KM(I know on the day it is not going to feel that way) and raising a pittance than I know that it will be well worth it. 

I have an amazing team "Burning Buns" of beautiful friends and colleagues who have helped me to make this possible and I know that as we bond over the coming months we will get up, we will get active in Nature and have fun fighting for BeyondBlue to help make our country a happier, more positive and amazing place to live.
