A message from Toby:
Waz was many things, a man of many passions. Over the years he was a soldier, a businessman, a musician, a surfer, a self-taught handyman and mechanic, and an absolute weapon on a motorbike. But above all this, the greatest role he ever took on, in my entirely unbiased opinion, was a dad. My dad. The greatest dad a man could ever ask for. Throughout my entire life, I never once felt like he didn’t have my back. Never once did I doubt that he’d be there for me when I needed him most. Never once did he let me forget that no matter what, he loved me. Losing him was the hardest thing I've ever experienced in my life. That's why this October I am running 75km in support of the Black Dog Institute, who are working everyday to shed light on, and funding and completing research to better understand mental illness, and how we can combat it. This one's for you Dad, rest in peace.
A message from Zoe:
Warwick, you will always be unconditionally loved in everyone's hearts, so this fundraiser goes out in memory of you. Mental health and suicide is a struggle that affects Australians across all ages. Men’s mental health is often disregarded due to stigma, shame and societal standards. It is everyone's responsibility to create a more healthy understanding around how it is ok to not be ok. If you are currently struggling with mental health please remember you are not alone and you are loved. Suicide also has a significant impact on family members and loved ones, so I’m additionally running to promote the idea of reaching out to the people in your life for support if you’re not feeling ok, or you’re helping someone get through mental health. As someone that has been affected by depression, anxiety, adhd and bipolar, I personally understand the importance of creating a healthier conversation around these uncomfortable topics.
