We have been working with kids/teens and adults for a long time now and one of the things that is often prevalent when people come to us is the battle youths face with depression and suicide. This can be from bullying in school or online, issues in the home, at work or feeling like they don't fit in, isolated, alone. We want to show everyone that they are not alone and that we stand (or run) with them.
I have decided to run from Perth to Margaret River to raise much needed awareness so that we can hopefully gain momentum to work as a community to give support to those who need it.
I chose Margaret River as the final destination because the issue itself is not limited to one area, one group, one stereotype. It is diverse and it is not restricted to a postcode. So starting in the metro area all the way down through some of rural WA and the South West.
The plan will be to make stops in suburbs and towns along the way to talk with schools, groups and communities and share stories. Remember those who are no longer with us. We want to highlight some of the major issues that cause depression and suicide among youths and try to be part of a solution.
We have a GoFund me page https://www.gofundme.com/colinluthwood
to raise the funds needed for the run and are looking for sponsorship's from local businesses who would like to get behind the cause.
We will be posting videos updating you on my training and the progress of the run so subscribe to keep in the loop!
