Did you know that one in three women experience anxiety and one in five experience depression? It’s something that’s touched each of our lives — whether we’ve battled it ourselves, or seen the effect on someone we love, so it fills our hearts to know that there are beautiful people doing something about it!
On Friday 30 April, over 1200 incredible women and men will throw on their sneakers and embark on Coastrek — one epic 30km hike along the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula from Victor Harbor to Goolwa.
Buddying up in teams of four, these pepped up peeps will take in rugged coastline, spectacular bays, secret bush trails and historic sites, while changing lives. This inspiring event empowers and motivates these trekkers to get fit and healthy and is run by the go-getters from Wild Women on Top.
Not only is this a big sign of support for those affected by mental health, these superstars will be raising money in the lead-up to help the legends from Beyond Blue to continue their mission of protecting everyone’s mental health and improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities affected by anxiety, depression, and suicide.
Funds raised will help ensure every phone call, web chat and email to the 24/7 Beyond Blue Support Service is answered. And there’s nothing more important than that.
Since the very first Coastrek in Sydney in 2009, awesome trekkers across Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney have raised a staggering $30,000,000 for charity! Legends!
To everyone who is taking part in Coastrek 2021, or donating to this incredible cause, we say a huge THANK YOU!
You never know who may need these support services — it could be your sister, your daughter, your bestie, your wife, your husband, your son, you. Life with mental health challenges can be scary but this is a huge reminder that you’re never alone.
