Burpee Bounce Back

My Activity Tracking


My target 1534 Burpees

I'm fundraising for my family and especially my dad.

Three in four Australians will experience a mental health challenge by the time they turn 25.  Many in my family, including me are part of these statistics. My dad battled with bipolar disorder most of his life. 

Please support with me smashing out these 1534 burpees in memory of my dad.

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.

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!
