I’m walking this October for the people I love most who have especially struggled this year due to covid. I am also walking for my younger sister who has recently opened up about her mental health & has been fighting her battle 🤍.

I have lived with someone with mental illness. And have struggled with it myself for a long time. Walking I have found, has been a fantastic way for me to help me, not only feel physically better, but also mentally better with myself. So what better way than to walk for mental health? My goal is small, but I have learned that is important to make goals that you know you can obtain, but also pushes you a little bit. 😊

I’m walking in solidarity for the Australian community, my friends and family who are affected by mental illness and suicide. I'm also walking for those people who fought a good battle, but didn't make it. May the people who have lost their lives rest in eternal peace 🙏🏼 Help is just a phone call away. Speak up because you are never alone ❤️
