My target 30kms

Walking with my FIRST Advisers friends and family

This is my second Coastrek in 5 years. The first time, I did the 50km trek and raised money for the Fred Hollows Foundation which was a cause I wanted to support because I had such admiration for Fred. I was encouraged to do it by a dear friend and her husband, so I enlisted my husband to come along to make up the team of 4 which we called the Wingallamas (too hard to explain). I felt after the 15 or so hours it took to finish that walk that if I could do something like that, I could do anything. I was not in rush however to repeat the experience. 

This time is different. I am 'only' walking 30 km, I am raising money for Beyond Blue which is the first time that Coastrek has supported this charity, and I am bringing along 11 friends and family to join the fun. So FIRST Advisers is entering 3 teams of 4 - to make up the numbers there are partners, friends and former employees but we are all keen to see what we can do together. We have a goal to raise $10,000 between us. Beyond Blue is a fantastic organisation and all of us know someone who has struggled with anxiety or depression. I am walking for one of my daughters who has been living with this for the past 10 years - and we are all walking to help provide support in the coming months and years for all those affected by the bushfires. 

So the 12 of us are going to see what we can do to help this amazing organisation continue its amazing work.   

I’m taking on Sydney Coastrek!

On Friday 4 September, I'll be 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.
