This March, I’m challenging myself to swim to save lives.

Did you know that suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in Australia? That means that each year, more young people die by suicide than in car accidents or from cancer.

By sponsoring my participation in Laps for Life, you'll be helping ReachOut achieve its mission of ensuring that all young people have the support they need to be happy and well.

My Updates

Training continues

This morning my son (Mr 11) joined me for some early morning laps. So proud of him for getting up at 5am and after a while of sitting and watching, he decided to get in. Other than wanting to crawl back into bed and catch some z's when we got home, he loved how he felt after the swim. Positive vibes all morning.

You are amazing

Thank you all so much for your amazing generosity and support. I am blown away and your encouragment has given me the kick i needed to brave putting on the swimmers again. 

This morning i started training in preparation for completing the challenge in March. I was blessed to have my mum join me, who I haven't been able to see since mid last year due to COVID. Clearly, 20 years and 2 children have had an impact on my old times so I intend to use February to get some of that fitness back kick goals in March. 

I am also excited beacuse i won't be swimming on my own now. Even though my mum lives 9 hours away, we are joinging together as a team so we will be setting some new goals. Keeping each other in check and helping via phone on those days we may find it tough to get motivated.

I am not one to put my life and activities out there for all to see but i will do my best to give updates along the way. Thank you again for your support and donations for this great cause. We hope to do you proud.
