This March, The HappyCrossers are challenging ourselves 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 our 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.

As a group of ‘young mums’ our Rottnest swim team (The HappyCrossers) have 10 children between us. Youth mental health means an awful lot to us both personally and professionally. Please help us reach our fundraising goal as we swim 2000 laps this March!
