Burpee Bounce Back

I'm fundraising for mental health! My own mental health could use a bounce & the physical activity will certainly help!

Three in four Australians will experience a mental health challenge by the time they turn 25. Orygen works with young people, their families and friends, to develop new, positive approaches to preventing and treating mental disorders.

It’s been a challenging year for us all, and most of us could probably use some help in bouncing back towards a more positive state of mind.

That’s why this October I'm joining the Burpee Bounce Back Challenge – I'll be helping my own mental health by increasing my physical activity, and helping others by fundraising for mental health research so that young Aussies whose mental health isn’t going great can bounce back too.

Please help me by giving whatever you can. The more people that know about Orygen, 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!

My story

Tuesday 13th Oct
I was officially diagnosed with Depression in 2016. Since then it has been a constant battle to keep on top off. This challenge has come at a perfect time for me. Due to a recent event in my life I know that I need to make a conscious effort to pull myself out of the darkness that threatens. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
