Our 2019 HBF Run for a Reason Ambassadors: Channel 9 PerthNews Reporter, Louise Momber and Lifeline WA Community Fundraisers, Tarnee and John!
Louise and her daughter Ivy will be taking on the 4km walk for Lifeline WA to spread the message to anyone who is struggling that help is available and you are not alone.
“Lifeline WA is such an incredible service for anyone struggling to cope. Be it with a specific situation in their lives - or dealing with day to day. It’s not about comparing your battles with others. Everyone is treated equally and it’s the chance to be heard.”
After losing his brother to suicide in 2013, John found that running helped him cope with the feelings of loss that he was experiencing. This year John and Tarnee will be running the 12km to raise funds for Lifeline WA and to encourage others to reach out if they’re struggling.
Help us answer every single crisis call by running and raising funds for Lifeline WA.
