Our 2018 Ambassadors
Alison became a Biggest Loser contestant in 2008 and embarked on a journey of self-discovery that resulted in not only weight loss, but insight into how she was living her life. Alison tragically lost her husband, Robert, and father of their three children, to suicide in November 2008. Alison is taking part in the HBF Run for a Reason to get back into fitness and raise awareness of suicide prevention and Lifeline WA in the lead up to the 10 year anniversary of her husband's passing.
Michael, nicknamed "Thommo", has worked as a journalist, commentator and presenter in Perth for 37 years. In January 2018 he was appointed as Nine News Perth's key 6pm presenter. He is taking part in the HBF Run for a Reason with Lifeline WA to spread awareness of the impact suicide has on the WA community he loves so much.
In his early 20s, Greg went from being a happy and outgoing person to struggling with his mental health. Thanks to his friends, he was able to work through it. Now an avid climber, he is raising money for Lifeline WA as a community ambassador in his quest to take on Mount Everest in 2019.
