You’ve conquered Kokoda!

I'm fundraising to support mental health and our heroes

Team I have decided to take part in this year's March On with Soldier On.

Most of you will know a Veteran who is suffering from a mental health condition and if you don't then I am one of those Veterans. 

Since I set out on my journey through recovery and post Defence, I have often called on the support of Soldier On to help guide and mentor me through difficult times.

I am doing this year's March On to help raise money for those support services that can often save someone's life, because they have definitely saved mine.

I will set myself the challenge to run/walk 5km per day which I will record on strava.

Team I would like to have some fun throughout this. So if you donate more than $50 I will message one lucky person and that person can pick a distance between 5 - 15km for me to complete. 

So if you could kindly donate and support me it would be greatly appreciated.

And remember I am always here for you all. Reach out if you need.

Why 96kms? Because that's the length of the Kokoda Track to symbolise the courage and sacrifice of our service members.

Please March On with me and support my challenge, and together we can save lives.

$25 can fund a peer support session to 3 veterans, giving a safe and supportive space and an important first step in gaining the help they need.

Thanks so much for your support and wish me luck!

My Updates

Day 1 - It wasn't easy

Monday 1st Mar
I woke at 04:50 to my alarm and went straight to the bathroom and washed my face with the cold water. The body needed to be shocked to life.

My shoes and running gear were sitting right next to the basin and with a quick change I was walking out the door.

I ran my 12km distance along the coast from Newcastle to Mereweather because it is something about the ocean that grounds me and where I am most at peace.

Bring on tomorrow.
