On Purpose

“I have two objectives for this project; to change minds and save lives. Running, being in nature and part of a community have all contributed to my recovery from depression and maintained wellbeing. I want to share this experience with as many people as possible, celebrating what’s possible when we put our mind to it. And of course, when people get to a crisis point, there needs to be awareness of the resources that they can count on, and enough availability of professional help. That’s where CALM’s call centre professionals come in. This project will fund thousands of potentially life-saving calls. Knowing this will motivate every step; it already has.”

ON why

“Why am I doing this challenge? I’ve been there. I’ve literally stepped onto the edge, more than once. At the last minute, for love, for family, for a tiny glimmer of hope, I chose a different path. I wrote a different story. Now I want to share hope, because I know there are so many others across the country who are facing that same darkness. I want my journey to bring people together, make new connections between communities. I want to raise awareness and funding for the professionals who save lives, every single day. When one life is saved, one person on the end of the phone paid for, then every step, every kilometre, every ultra, they’ll all be worthwhile.”
