My Story

Hello!

I'll keep it short and sweet. Most of you will know that my running skills go as far as running a bath for my kids; I'm pretty unfit.

Other than wanting a personal target to help me improve my fitness, I wanted another opportunity to raise some money for Mental Health charity, Black Dog Institute. I help run a men's social group called Beer Buddy, which holds fundraisers to help raise money for various charities ($23,000 so far). Our previous event saw us raise $13,000 for Black Dog Institute, so would be great to top that number up.

Mental health issues are prevalent in Sydney, particularly out towards Western Sydney where I live. The work these guys do is very important, so any money raised is helpful. Very appreciative of any donations, large or small.

NB: I'm not promising any world records, but I'll definitely finish it...!


I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Black Dog Institute and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in The 2018 Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Black Dog Institute, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

For all Black Dog participants please Join our Team so we can run as one to stand up against the stigma surrounding Mental Health.

Your generosity will help Black Dog Institute to improve the lives of people impacted by mental illness and suicide.

Did you know that 1 in 5 Australians experiences mental illness in any given year, and about half of all people will experience mental health problems at some stage in their life? Despite being the ‘lucky country’, suicide is now our number one cause of death in young people – ahead of road accidents and cancer.

That’s why your support is so important to us. Your gift enables us to continue our ground breaking research, expand our education programs, as well as help us deliver new clinical treatments and online mental health tools.

Please help us by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about The 2018 City2Surf , the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
