My Story

Hey Everyone! As some of you may know I recently completed my first half-marathon, I'm now stepping up my game and challenging myself to do the Blackmores full marathon (42kms!) on the 16th September I have decided to also raise funds for beyondblue who do great work with raising awareness and providing support to some of the 3 million Australian’s living with anxiety or depression. Beyondblue also do a lot of work within the LGBTI community who are up to three times more likely to experience depression and anxiety than the broader population, and are at greater risk of suicide and self–harm. Please help support me with raising money for this worthy and close to home cause Thank you for your generosity and support, please feel free to share the message with friends or colleagues Cheers Karlos (Karli)

About my cause: beyondblue

3 million people in Australia are living with anxiety or depression. Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.

beyondblue provides information and support to help every person in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.

Most people in Australia have some experience with anxiety and depression or related disorders, whether it is personal or via family, friends or work colleagues. beyondblue’s work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands anxiety and depression, empowering all people in Australia, at any life-stage, to seek support. beyondblue raises awareness, reduces stigma and ensures people have access to the information they need to support recovery, management and resilience.   

beyondblue is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation and a bipartisan initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments.

beyondblue works in partnership with health services, schools, workplaces, universities, media and community organisations, as well as people living with depression/anxiety and their carers, to bring together expertise and provide tools and resources.  

For information on anxiety, depression and suicide prevention, visit www.beyondblue.org.au or call the beyondblue Support Service on 1300 22 4636.
