I’m Clocking K’s for R U OK?

This July, I’m joining K’s for R U OK? to stay connected, develop healthy habits and help to create a world where we're connected and there’s a greater awareness of mental health.

Each week I'll be consistent in my clocking as I walk to help start more life-changing conversations. 

By donating to my page you are helping R U OK? provide free, essential resources to schools, workplaces, families, and communities across Australia. Giving them the tools and confidence to spot the signs and to start a conversation that could change the life of someone who's struggling. And you'll be putting a big smile on my face.

Thank you so much. 🫶🏻

July k’s for R U OK? challenge

Sunday 30th Jul
This July has certainly been a journey! I’m very proud to say I have managed to walk 232km. My initial goal was 100km and I just kept upping it as I went. . . Unfortunately work gets in the way tomorrow so I won’t be getting out there for an official walk, but will do my best to get my steps up. Thank you so much everyone for your support in cheering me on this past month, as well as all that have donated — a big big thank you. With much love, and can’t wait for the next walk I have planned. - Clare xx 🫶🏻

So, it’s day 27 and I’ve cracked my 200km goal; I’m sitting at 212k’s this July!! So stoked I made it. Today took me on an early morning walk into Mulligan’s Flat from Forde — nice 5km walked. 🫶🏻 #ksforruok Edit: 11.7km’s — 14,461 steps for Day 27.

K’s for R U OK? — wildlife sightings

Sunday 23rd Jul
On my journey to reach 200km’s this July, I’ve been quite lucky with my wildlife sightings! My fav, the cute ‘lil echidna which I was lucky enough to spot two days in a row. #ksforruok 🫶🏻

Took it easy today and did a quick 4.24km around Yerrabi Pond with one of my besties. #ksforruok 🫶🏻 Edit: 9.7 km’s — 11,873 steps for Day 23.

Day 22 — morning and afternoon walks

Saturday 22nd Jul
So, day 22 has brought me two - 4km mini hikes through Mulligans Flat nature reserve from Throsby in the morning to Forde in the arvo! Many kangaroos were seen on my arvo walk, who were a ‘lil reluctant to move at times when it was my only way out. . . 😬 But I managed to convey I wasn’t a threat and they moved on. Amazing pic of mum & Bub attached — a little too close for my liking though. From the two walks I’ve done 15.4k’s — 19,647 steps and climbed an equivalent of 16 flights of stairs. Wow. I’m tired. That’s it for day 22 — 183 km’s so far for July! 🤩 #ksforruok 🫶🏻

Day 21 - k’s for R U OK?

Friday 21st Jul
I’ve been quite lucky these last couple of days in my echidna spotting on my walks! Loving nature’s surprises. Got a nice little video of this guy eating. 🤩 Well, todays adventures took me into Mulligan’s Flat again but from the back of Forde along the woodland and bird walks — where I found a nice 5km loop which included walking past the old woodshed. No kangaroos on the inside of this section which was a stark contrast to yesterdays hundreds at Little Mulligans nature reserve at the back of Bonner. #ksforruok 🫶🏻 Edit: 10.2 km’s — 12,419 steps for Day 21.

Today I did two walks, I walked to the hairdressers and did an afternoon hike. (Total of 7.4km together). Not too bad, and there was one steep hill. Looking forward to the next walk or hike. 🫶🏻 #ksforruok Edit: 11.4km’s — 13, 826 steps and 32 stair equivalents climbed for Day 20.
