Out of the Shadows 2023

Celebrating Jakeb. Loved beyond words.

No words came out,  I didn’t know how to reach out to or support Jakeb’s parents, or any of his loving family, who have been like a second family to me and my children. 

I watched Jakeb grow from a  cheeky, humorous, caring, boy. To a gorgeous young man, who loved and cared for others wholeheartedly, and loved to make people laugh despite having his own challenges in life. 
I honestly still have no words.  
I know it’s just a walk. But I just want to try to give a little bit to this cause, hoping it will help to assist someone else with reaching out. 

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 $53 so far to answer 1 call 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.
