I will be walking the Emerson's Dunedin 2023 half marathon on Septmember 10th for PADA (Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Aotearoa).

Dunedin, Otago

Over the few years, I have been walking the pavement on the streets, and tracks (also walking the Otago Rail Trail for Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Aotearoa (PADA). Before and after having my “wee man”, ( he is now 6”2!) I experienced major depression and anxiety. Also, my mental health suffered big time. I can understand as to how frighting and overwhelming it can become looking after a wee bundle of joy. I am walking the streets and tracks in the rain, hail or shine and (possibly) snow to raise money for PADA so that mums, their wee bundle of joys and families can get and have support to know that they are not alone.

I will be walking the Emerson's Dunedin 2023 half marathon on September 10th for PADA. My goal is to walk it in 3 hrs.

PADA is a national charity that provides advocacy and awareness through training and facilitating connections and tools for health care providers who are supporting families with anxiety & depression due to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting.
