Kokoda 2023

☑️I've danced in a 10 kg duck suit at Bondi Beach for work.

☑️I've driven a food relief van into outback Australia for work.

And come November 2023...

 I'll be airdropped into Papua New Guinea jungle to trek the 150 km Kokoda Track for work?!


In 2 months, I'll be trekking Kokoda in solidarity with a passionate crew of Black Dog Institute supporters - all with a personal connection to the cause and a shared commitment to better mental health for all Australians.

Please support me in raising vital funds for Black Dog Institute's life-saving mental health programs 🐶🧡

Every dollar of your donation will help Black Dog Institute to not just research the causes of mental ill health, but also transform this research into real-world solutions for those in need. This includes innovative treatments for depression and anxiety, suicide prevention initiatives that save lives, and free mental health resources for anyone who needs them.

I've only been given 2 months to transform myself from couch potato to bush-bashing dynamo. So any donation you can spare would be so gratefully received! 🤩🤩🤩

Your encouragement will help me continue training hard and, come November, avoid being airlifted out of Papua New Guinea in defeat 🚁THANK YOU
