Forever in our hearts

Steve

My brother, my best friend - forever 30. Always on my mind and forever in my heart ❤️

I'm walking to remember those lost to suicide and help people in crisis

As most of you know, I tragically lost my brother Steve to suicide 9 years ago in 2015. It has taken a huge toll on my family, one which we never want any other family to ever experience. 

Mental health is a crisis in Australia. I want to raise awareness and money to help people who are struggling to get the support they need. No one should ever be alone in their darkest moments.

I will be walking 9km for World Suicide Prevention day (10th September) to remember my brother, the 9 years we have lost with him and also the 9 lives lost to suicide every day in Australia. Any donation you could make would mean the world to me ❤️

Tragically, every year over 65,000 Australians attempt to take their own life and over 3,000 Australians die by suicide. 

Lifeline receives over 1 million contacts from people in crisis each year.

Suicide has devastating impact on friends and loved ones.

Please support my walk and sponsor me to help those in crisis.

My impact so far

I've raised $1,334 so far to answer 34 calls for Lifeline's crisis support hotline to connect and bring hope to people in crisis.

With your support, we can ensure that no person has to face their darkest moments alone.

Our family has been touched by suicide. I often feel terribly sad when I think that the person we knew died feeling so alone! The devastation for those left behind never really heals. I’ve don’t that walk before, it’s was very emotional to look around and see so many faces affected by loss in this way! 100% support to you and your family ❤️
