My Goal

Did you know that 65,000 Australians attempt to take their life each year? We believe that gives us 65,000 reasons to run for a great cause!

Every year over 65,000 Australians attempt to take their lives – that gives me 65,000 reasons to Tread As One.

R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and protected from suicide. 

Their mission is to inspire and empower people to meaningfully connect and lend support those struggling with life.

I believe in their mission, because I've been there!

I have faced serious injuries, upset and hurt. I'm sure we all have. The simple question of RU OK and the support that these guys provide, both people and our emergency services is amazing!

So we are asking, instead of that second coffee, can you, would you sponsor me $5. Lean in and dream of the difference it's make. 

I’d really appreciate your support – every donation helps.

Your donation will help inspire people to take the time to ask "are you OK?" and listen, which can help people struggling with life feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

Thank you for your support, together we will make a difference as we Tread As One.

Why do this? Why strive to tred and get donations?

Saturday 15th May
For me, this is quite a challenge, physically and mentally. I'm going to share a chapter of my story, so please lean in and support my fundraising efforts.
11 Nov 2018, I was involved in an on-water incident. At the time, I was not expecting the impacts it's since had on my life, which I am still working through and recovering from. I needed surgery to fix the damage to my ankle, but due to rare complications, I subsequently went through 4 surgeries all up on my foot. Each time I got told I needed surgery, it got harder and harder to process. At one point, when I received the call, I was only a few weeks into a new job. I couldn't string the words together to tell my boss what was going on. I just needed to leave, as I was not okay.
Hence, as I continue to recover and take on this challenge, I ask for your support. So that together, we can support the next round of people that need the resources of the RU OK team.

Thank you to my Sponsors
