Team Lara

Laps for Lara

Lara was from a family of six chilren and had been suffering from depression.  Sadly she took her own life on 16/02/19 leaving her family devastated and searching for answers.  Please help other young people and prevent suicide through services such as Reach Out. 

Swimming For Mental Health Awareness

We're putting a team together to raise awareness for mental health and suicide for young Australians.

Our goal is to swim 100km in March.  If you would like to donate to this worthy cause please do.

Thank you to our Sponsors
