My target 42 kms
I'm fundraising for a great cause!
After running the Melbourne Marathon in 2019 I said I would never do one of those again as the pain sucked a lot. But I have decided to run the Porto Marathon to challenge myself again and also to help R U OK? to 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.
Number of suicides in Australia have increased from 2,098 in 2004 (creation of Facebook/social media) to 3,318 by 2019.
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.
