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 to the people in their world who may be struggling with life.

I believe in their mission and will be running as far as I can and raising as much money and awareness as possible for this cause that’s close to my heart.

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 am I doing this?

Monday 3rd May
I know that life can get hard sometimes and you might feel that it's easier to give up than to suffer. I made a suicide attempt around 6 years ago. Luckily it was unsuccessful.
It took me a very long time to understand that life is worth living. I felt so alone all the time, there was no support and no love in my life. I made some drastic changes and I still feel depressed sometimes. But I have lots of strength inside me and I have very supportive and loving relationship with my partner. In the last 3 years I have experienced more joy in my life than all the other 25 years. Good times are coming when you give a little effort, you make some changes and think positively towards things you have in your life.
