Support My Run for Mental Health Research

Many years ago our family lost our dear brother Brian due to mental illness. Brian was admitted to hospital as he was struggling with life, he truly felt lonely and that his family never loved him…. he was lost! Unfortunately Brian was involved in an altercation with another mental illness patient that ultimately ended his life. My beautiful parents and his siblings were mortified.

A few years later, one of my sisters was diagnosed with Bi Polar and has suffered greatly. She has been in and out of hospital for the past 10 + years along with many different treatments, medications which has helped at times but she has a long road back to being her normal self!

Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?

In fact, every day in Australia, 8 people will die from suicide.

Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. 

This October, I’ll be walking to make a difference to the lives of people touched by mental illness and suicide!

I'm fundraising to raise money for life-changing research into treatment and prevention of mental illness, as well as vital support services. 

It would mean so much to me if you'd support my running this October. In fact, my goal is to run everyday day in October!
