Join me on my self-funded journey and donate to Voices Of Hope. In February I begin walking the length of our beautiful Country- hiking the incredible Te Araroa, whilst raising funds and awareness for Mental Health & Suicide Prevention.
From a early age my life was deeply impacted by losing someone very special to Suicide. Shortly after this I became a mum at 16 years old.
What followed was a journey of grief, that was continuous in my life losing many significant people including my Partner of 10 years and my Daughters father.
My life spiralled into self destructive behaviour with substance abuse having a big part in my life.
As someone who has fought and overcome mental illness, I am deeply passionate about what I believe my soul mission is - to help others. Recovery is possible, there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel.
I am living proof of this.
Life can be beautiful, purposeful and full of hope.
As I walk 3000kms over these months I hope to inspire others to get out in nature,
Navigate life one lesson at a time whist healing through being physically active.
One step at a time ....
Follow my journey and walk alongside me
