Out of the Shadows 2023

Being there for each other

If there is one thing I feel that society really sucks at sometimes, it’s being there for each other. We get so caught up in our own lives that someone else’s pain can often so unnoticed. We should not be living in a country where the leading cause of death for people aged 15-44 is suicide, especially as it is completely preventable. 
It’s my aim to draw awareness to this statistic and help in providing support to those who are at risk. 

I'm 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, I will be taking part in Out of the Shadows and walking for the 9 people lost to suicide every day.

I'm walking to raise funds for Lifeline to provide suicide prevention services and support for Australians in need.

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

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

My impact so far

I've raised $152 so far to answer 3 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.
