I'm fundraising for a great cause!
On Sunday October 24, Beautiful Fit is having a walk from one pub up the hill to another.
We are walking from the Ed in Mitcham to the Stirling Hotel in Stirling. We will meet at the Ed at 8.30am.
We have done this walk before and this time decided to make it a fundraiser to recognise member Amanda who lost 2 special people within a month.
Her childhood friend Sophie Putland, and her cousin Chris Edwards, both took their own lives.
We are asking each walker donate $30 (minimum, larger amounts welcome too!) and this includes a champagne or soft drink on arrival at the Stirling Hotel.
You are welcome to stay for lunch at the Stirling, this is at the individual's cost.
Afterwards, you can walk back or grab a ride (best to organise before hand).
The walk is about 12kms, and 2.5 hours. The steepest part is at the start when we leave from Brownhill Creek, and lasts about 10 minutes. Half is on grass or dirt track and the other half is on the bitumen of the old freeway.
I have decided to fundraise for R U OK? to help spread their message and help prevent suicide.
About 8 people take their own lives in Australia every day.
For every death, it’s estimated another 30 people will attempt suicide.
89% of people report knowing somebody who has made an attempt.
I want to help change these numbers.
R U OK?’s vision is of a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide.
Their mission is to inspire everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and support anyone struggling with life.
By inspiring people to take the time to ask, “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people who are struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.
Thank you so much for your support, together we will make a difference.
