Out of the Shadows 2023

We're walking to remember those lost to suicide and help people in crisis

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.

On World Suicide Prevention Day, we will be taking part in Out of the Shadows and walking for the 9 people lost to suicide every day.

We are walking to raise funds for Lifeline to provide suicide prevention services and support Aussies in need.

Please support our walk and make a donation to help those in crisis.

Together we can ensure that no one has to face their darkest moments alone.

Our impact so far

We've raised $5,198 so far to answer 133 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.


Thank you to our Sponsors

Well done Kell. Thank you for sharing your journey with us all. You’re a star ⭐️



Lots of ttimes I’ve gone to write to you, to tell you the impact that your sharing on social media, and the creation Bonny Co has had for me. But I just think I would have to write too much, it would be too long, I feel like it doesn’t belong on email … I’d need to write a letter. And so I just never do. But I’m grateful for this to pushed me to make a donation and send you this note to say that what you have done has had impact. To just say ‘thank you’


Karen White

For your lost loved one and my brother 💙
