Join Olympic Gold Medallist and mum, Juliet Haslam, and journalist Jennifer Byrne, for the inaugural Adelaide Coastrek, 30-60km Team Trekking Challenge, on Tuesday 21st September 2018. You and your girlfriends will hike with thousands of women for fun, fitness, friends and wellbeing on Friday and an opportunity for a guilt-free girls weekend. But be quick registrations close 1st May 2018.
Social purpose enterprise, Wild Women On Top, are inviting teams of four (at least 50% women) to join the life-changing adventure, raising funds for mental health organisation, beyondblue. To register head to www.adelaide.coastrek.com.au.
With one in four Australian women experience mental health conditions and this is a great way to support them. According to CEO of Beyond Blue, Georgie Harman research shows keeping active can help you stay mentally healthy or manage and recover from anxiety or depression. I couldn't agree more with Georgie because when I suffered from Post Natal Depression and decided to get super fit my PND lifted quickly and I never suffered from depression again until my brother took his life. When that happened nothing could help me get away from that grief and darkness except for time, and slowly but surely, time did help me heal.
