The Black Dog Lap

By Jessica Evans Join Me

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

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.

The Black Dog Lap

Thursday 28th Jan
Hello and thanks for stopping by,

In March 2021 I’m aiming to swim a lap around Bribie Island to raise vital funds for R U OK?. The swim will be carried out over multiple days. 

 R U OK? do amazing work in our community by encouraging conversations and empowering people to connect with those in their world and lend support when they are struggling with life.

Ultimately their goal is to reduce the suicide rates within Australia. 

My goal is a big one.... I would love to raise $2,000 for R U OK?, so if you can spare a few dollars, please donate through this page! 

No amount is too small. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
