Callan's fundraising page - my first half marathon!

$501

Raised of $500

For Beyond Blue

Hi to all my friends! I am really excited to be participating again in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. I will be completing my very first half marathon! For those who know me well, I enjoy running very much. It is my happy place to get outside, get the heart rate up, and to release some endorphins. This year I chose to support Beyond Blue, and my fundraising goal is to raise $500. Beyond Blue is an Australian independent non-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, suicide, anxiety disorders and other related mental disorders. Did you know that 3 million Australians are living with anxiety or depression? It only takes a minute and any money you can give (no matter how large or small) will go a long way to helping me reach my target. I (really do) appreciate your support and thank my friends and family!

I recently read some interesting articles in AdNews (April 2019) around depression and anxiety in the workplace. #SAdNews

Insightful read. Especially around adressing the stigma, culture and leading by example in the workplace, and why your work should even know.
