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, 8 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 show people living with mental illness that they are not alone.

I'm walking to raise funds for the Black Dog Institute to support crucial mental health research and support services to help Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide.

It would mean so much to me if you'd support my walk this October.

Together, we can create a mentally healthier world, for everyone.

My Updates

One for the Dad's

It doesn’t get spoken about enough!


And it’s not an experience you would wish on anyone. 


Kate my sister and I lost our dad Peter by suicide. This year marks the 20th anniversary for both of us and our family and friends since we last saw this much loved man. We are on a mission to raise awareness and raise funds in honour of our Dad who left us far too soon. Too soon to meet our kids, too soon to come to our weddings and sadly too soon to get the help they needed to recover from the black dog.

How can you help? We have set a target for this October to clock up some km’s and raise funds for the Black Dog Institute to support crucial mental health research and support services to help Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide.


August is recruitment month. We are looking for an army of friends and supporters who would like to walk in our team - “One for the Dads”. Km’s are tracked individually, and we will aim to get together whenever we can.
