10 Challenges, 10 Months, $10000

$8,073 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 126 people in 5 months

We need to end Family and Domestic Violence
Its a cause I'm highly passionate about and its something I have personal knowledge of and I have experienced myself

I also have the tools to do something about Domestic violence by raising awareness.
I'm an Explorer,   a trail runner, a mountain biker and an Adventure Racer and Im also certifiably insane.!!!
So Im pooling  all of these talents and Im running wild and trying to raise a lot of money....

But in 2019
I’m doing it my way
I want to do 10 challenges in 10 months to raise $10,000.

All funds raised will go to the THE YACAABA CENTRE   in Nelson Bay.
I have spoken with Lyn at The Yacaaba Centre and they have endorsed my challenge.

Just wanted to say thank you all, for so much support, so many messages and well wishes for the campaign.

I cant always answer very question, So I thought would answer some in a post.
You guys are simply amazing !

Why Domestic violence, and why am I personally focusing on the women killed this year?

DV is something very close to my heart and something I have personal experience with,
I have survived and overcome a very emotionally abusive relationship and I can use my personal experiences to relate to women who are victims of Family Violence.
I also chose to focus on women , because they are our Mums, my friends, our sisters, aunts and family and they need our help



Why 10 major challenges, where you could get hurt or push your body too far.

I usually do 4 major events each year, I know what my body and mind can do, I will use my experience ain adventure and DV to fuel my fire.
Im working with a coach and also my Physio ensure my body is well looked after.
Most of the battle with this campaign will be mental, Its also my way of healing too .
I have incredible support systems in place, with my partner , family and friends.
They all have my back on this one and many will join me along the way


What do you hope to achieve?

I hope to raise a minimum of $10000 for the Yacaaba centre and I hope to inspire at least one woman to believe she is worth more than she’s told.
I hope she can see her worth, change the pattern , speak out and stay safe.
I hope I can inspire women to have courage, be brave and take a step towards a better life.
I hope I can help share the resources we have to women to help them in their battle with DV.
