My motivation

A dear friend of mine recently took his own life. I'm heartbroken. Ben had been fighting a mental illness. In spite of this, he was always the life and soul of the party. He was a true character, nothing short of a legend and had an enviable energy. He would light up a room and have me laughing until my sides hurt every time I saw him. When you were around him, you forgot all of your own problems. He embraced the now and loved to be silly. I remember in Geography class when he took my stringy hair scrunchie, did some origami with throat sweet wrappers and, voila...there was a nest with 4 birds in it! I wish I could have lifted him the way he lifted me.

This tragedy has led to me researching mens mental health for the first time. I was stunned to see 60 men commit suicide every hour. I'll be walking a total of 60km during November to honour these men. I'll be bringing a dog, or 4, along for the ride.

I want to help stop the torment and pain men with a mental illness are experiencing. I want to help prevent their precious lives being lost. I want to help put an end to the anguish, heartache and grief that those who lose a loved one experience. The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I want to help them get there. Help me stop wonderful and loved men, like Ben, dying too young.

You will live inside my heart forever Benji. Ride on.
