Walking The Black Dog!
Last year I walked 2000kms from Land’s End to John o’Groats in Britain. It took me 91 days and was one of the most memorable projects I have ever embarked on. I raised funds for two mental health charities. Black Dog Institute in Australia and SANE’s Black Dog Campaign in UK. They’re both fantastic charities which are involved not only in research and support but also in raising awareness of mental health and cracking wide open the taboo that’s associated with it. I was overwhelmed with the support I received from readers of my blog and by the AU$90,000 that was raised.
