It’s all starting to hurt now. One thing I have said along the last 5 days is; I constantly ride with my phone attached to my handle bars. Whenever I get a donation it will flash on my screen. I don’t care how much it is or who it’s from, just the thought gives me so much energy to keep pushing! So Thankyou to everyone, the feeling is so real ✌️

Hey Everyone!

My name is Grant Ward, I am 30 years old and from Brisbane, Queensland. I am currently struggling with my own mental illness. 

In my own mental health journey I am being treated through counselling sessions, medication and practicing of mindfulness. For a lot of people and myself, just getting yourself to the doctor to have the conversation can be feel impossible in times of poor mental health

This conversation can even be feel difficult to have with friends and family, the very network of support we rely on day-to-day. This journey I am undertaking is merely to help break the stigma in my extended friends group and community. These these conversations are ok to have. 

I am riding my bicycle 1700km solo along the Bicentennial Trail from Brisbane to Townsville for my own personal journey to help raise awareness of having these difficult conversations with our support networks, I’d also like to raise some money along the way. 

 I’m asking for any donation you might have to be directly donated to the Black Dog Institute. There will be a link on this page. I want to raise  $1700. That will be  $1 for every km I  ride. 

 Please follow my journey,  share around and help break the stigma.

Thank you to my Sponsors
