Out of the Shadows 2023

I'm walking to remember those lost to suicide

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 $2,858 so far to answer 73 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.

I did not know Pete, but feel I've gotten to know him through you. I see by your tears he is dearly missed but not forgotten. I will walk with you to remember Pete and support you in this great cause.

My weekly trip to the coast, just outside of Bungendore at a place called Moura Creek I remember Pete, long story, but a spot on this earth that always reminds me of him.
