My walk is dedicated to the memory of Daniel Stone
Support My Walk for Mental Health Research
Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?
In fact, every day in Australia, 9 people will die by 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 taking part in One Foot Forward to help reduce the impact of mental illness and suicide.
I'm walking to raise funds for Black Dog Institute, so that they can put ground-breaking new mental health treatment, education, and digital services into the hands of the people who need them most.
It would mean so much to me if you donated to support my walk.
Together, we can create better mental health for all Australians.
19th of SeptI have been blessed through MP Chris Crewther sharing about the One Foot Forward challenge on facebook and have also finished an interview with Ailish D from 7news.com.au.
R U Ok day 14 of Sept
8th SeptToday, my lived experience has been shared on the One Foot Forward page. I wish it was a story I didn't have to share (as in we still had Daniel with us) but I hope that in having shared it, that it will help someone else. Bless you all. xx
4th of SeptWe've smashed and doubled my first goal of $1k and I am hoping somehow that we can push a little further to $2500.
Updated goalTwo days ago, I set a Sept challenge and we have already smashed it. Sitting > $1500! I have decided to update my goal to $2k. We are only $316 off this new goal. I am so proud of everyone - donors, walking buddies and those who have offered best wishes, <3
Aug fundraising mini challenge metI had proposed on my social media a challenge to meet $1300 by the end of August. Thanks to two donors yesterday, we are now at $1350! Let's keep going and keep making a huge difference.
Aug 19th Update
Goal!We've already reached my target fundraising goal but I hope we can push the total donation amount further. I received an email from OFF saying that $1000 means 1286 people with suicidal thoughts reached. That is a huge amount of people to be able to help. I still fully believe that if one person is helped, we have won. Imagine if we could keep providing sources for even more people who may have been in Daniel's shoes (or similar shoes). Bless you all. xx
RememberingWe are off to an amazing start for this year's fundraising. I also want to thank those who have provided encouraging words and also have offered to join me on some of my walking adventures in October.
