MSA Mental Health Month 2022

MSA for Mental Health! Swim Around Keppel

A 20km Open Water Swim around Great Keppel Island on Sunday 24th July.

I'm taking part in setting myself a creative challenge for MSA Mental Health to raise vital funds for Black Dog Institute. 

1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia, that’s around 5 million people. And roughly 60% of these people won’t seek help.

Please donate and empower everyone in Australia to look after their mental health. 

My Updates

One day to go

Saturday 23rd Jul
I'm overwhelmed by the support received so far . Thank you to everyone.  Less than one day to go and the weather improves with each passing hour. We still don't know the exact course. They are waiting to the last minute to decide based on conditions. Yes. There a few nerves. Bring it on!

Thank you to my Sponsors
