"Step into Action, An Endurance Walk for Youth Mental Health"
On April 6th-7th, 2024, I'm embarking on a 30-hour, 200-km journey. With every step, I'll be raising awareness and fighting for a brighter future for our young people. I will be walking non stop around a 400 metre athletic track, pushing myself to my absolute physical and mental limits. I hope to be joined by up to 500 individuals, groups and community groups who will walk some or all of the walk with me.
In Australia, 1 in 5 young people ( aged 12-17) and 1 in 4 young people ( aged 16-14) struggle with mental health challenges like anxiety, depression. Suicide is the leading cause of death for young Australians aged 16-24 and this is not acceptable as losing just one young person to suicide is too many.
This isn't just a walk, it's a movement, working towards a resilience revolution for young people.
How You Can Help?
I have chosen to partner with BREED Australia, a Western Sydney charity that will receive 100% of all funds raised through the event to put into their School and Community Learning Programs (Emotional Intelligence, Resilience, and Goal Achievement), working with schools and community groups in Western Sydney.
