My Activity Tracking
My target 150 kms
150kms for R U OK - In loving memory of Ben Colquhoun.
This July, I’m taking on the K’s for R U OK? challenge to stay connected, develop healthy habits and help to create a world where we're connected and protected from suicide.
As someone who has struggled significantly in previous years with my own mental health and someone who witnesses it all too often in the FIFO Industry, raising awareness and shining the spotlight on mental health has always been a passion of mine.
This year is different though, in May 2022 I lost my former partner of ten years and best friend until the very end, Ben Charles Colquhoun (19.08.1989 - 24.05.2022).
For those of you who attended Ben’s funeral, you would have heard me use words such as generous, selfless and humorous to describe Ben. He was always laughing, smiling and eager to brighten your day. Ben truly is a terrifying reminder of how quickly and silently someone’s battle can change.
Life will never be the same without you Bee and its breaks me every day to imagine the pain that you and so many others have felt in their final days. I will always do my best to make you proud and to continue raising awareness for this special cause, which is now closer to my heart than ever before.
Friends – I urge you to donate, promote, support in whatever capacity you can. Keep those discussions flowing, keep asking one another “R U OK?”. Start the conversation and genuinely mean it. But not just in July. Every day. Every month. Every year.
