Help Tim and Will beat PTSD

My name is Tim Koloi, and I am a medically retired Queensland Police officer, father of three, managing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I am looking to raise $5000 to assist me in achieving a physical and mental challenge. My 15 year old mate Will, has asked me to accompany him on a hike from Brisbane City to the Sydney opera house.

In 2011, I suffered a mental breakdown. I developed anxiety and major depression. I am pleased to report that my life appears to be getting back on track, through a lot of help from family, friends and professionals.

I intend to video document our journey, and share via social media, and hope to ask and answer a few of the dark questions related to my experience of PTSD.

Moneys raised will assist in paying for hiking equipment, electronic recording devices, navigation and safety equipment, food, transport for the return trip, and any unexpected incident management.

Through this endeavour, I wish to give hope to those suffering PTSD, and show that their goals and dreams may still be achieved despite that deep black hole they believe they cannot escape.

Will is also trying to raise funds to acquire the gear he will need.
