Kokoda 2023

Help me create a mentally healthier world!

I'm standing up to join Team Black Dog to turn ground breaking research into life saving action.

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Australians every year, with the most common being depression and anxiety. Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life — individuals, families, workplaces and communities.

I'm inspired by the work of Black Dog Institute and want to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Black Dog Institute's Hike for Mental Health: Kokoda 2023.

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can.

The more people that know about Black Dog Institute, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to so many!

Hi All,
Only a couple of weeks in and I'm just over the $1300 mark on my fund-raising efforts. 
I'm ever so greatful to those kind souls who have donated to this wonderful cause. 
My aim is to hopefully reach my half wat goal by December so if any one would like to kindly donate it would be greatful.
Again thank you so much for your generosity. 
Cheers Wayne
