Port 2 Pajinka

$37,587

Target: $30,000
Our Motivation

We are running 1000kms from June 18th to July 10th from my hometown of Port Douglas to the northernmost tip of Australia (Pajinka) in 22 days. We are undertaking this challenge to help raise much needed funds and awareness in addressing the mental health crisis currently raging in Australia!

The statistics surrounding suicide in Australia are alarming enough, but for our First Nations people the statistics are even worse. Three times as many First Nations people under 18 years of age die by suicide as other young Australians, and 12 times as many First Nations children under 15. These rates are simply too high.

The collective emphasis of Movember on improving men's health specifically men's mental health I feel will surely impact these statistics in a positive manner. A healthier, connected and supported community of men across all minority groups of Australia will provide an environment for the next generation of young people to grow and thrive in. I understand this is a simplistic viewpoint but I honestly do believe it. Better men = Better people = Better outcomes for all.
