52 for Blue – The Goal:
‘52 Events in 52 Weeks’ to support the organisation beyondblue, for people with depression.
This is something that has touched me personally and effects 1000′s of Australian’s everyday. Through awareness and exercise I believe we can help those who suffer from anxiety and ddepression.
I have experienced first hand the impact depression can have on a person, their family and friends. My wife suffered from depression after giving birth to our 3 children and I can relate to the damage, heartache and pain it can cause a relationship. With great will and determination she fought back, through exercise and a sense of belonging she won the battle and returned back to her former self. My wife continues to live her life free from depression, to obtain the goals she had earlier set out for herself and to use her experience to help others through difficult times.
My Event to raise funds and awareness for ‘beyondblue’ is called ‘52 for Blue’.
By proudly supporting beyondblue, I have set the goal to compete in 52 obstacle /endurance races each week for 52 weeks around Australia.
Starting in January 2014, my aim is to promote living a healthy and active life and how it can help reduce the amount of Depression and Anxiety in our community. We want it to impact on those people who are suffering, and to let them know there are other ways to overcome depression that aren’t totally reliant upon Medication.
Please help me help others by giving whatever you can using the ‘Give Now’ button. (???insert link)
Please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. I believe at some stage in your life, you, or someone close will be effected in some way by Depression.
You can follow me on my journey here or my website 52 for Blue http://www.52forblue.com.au.
I would like to thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity in helping this great cause.
If you attend, or join me, in any of the weekly events please come and say G’day. All your encouragement and support will be greatly appreciated to help raise further funds for 52 for Blue – supporting beyondblue.
