I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 and raising funds for beyondblue. beyondblue is committed to every person in Australia achieving their best possible mental health, a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. Since losing my dad, Steve, to suicide in 2006, I've become more and more aware of how debilitating depression and anxiety can be for those who suffer from these and similar illnesses. By supporting beyondblue, you can help reduce the stigma around mental illness and provide information about recovery, management and resilience for those who need it most. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me.
