Marg and Pieter's 100 Day Walk for Mental Health

Supporting Lishman Health Foundation Inc.

Lishman Health Foundation Inc.

Marg Rhodes and Pieter van Aalen will be participating in a 100 Day walk from June to August 2019. The Via Francigena walk is approximately 2,000km long and starts in Canterbury and ends in Rome. In order to complete this walk, Marg and Pieter will average 20km per day.

This walk isn't just to challenge Marg and Pieter individually, but to raise awareness for mental health.

Marg and Pieter feel very strongly about funding and supporting elective programs to assist people with mental health conditions and to find a way forward in managing their illness.

Mental health illness does not discriminate and affects many individuals, families and friends. Marg and Pieter understand this first hand as they have experienced the effects and impact of anxiety and depression on their young adult son.

The 100 Day Walk will be totally self-funded by Marg and Pieter. All money raised will go towards mental health programs coordinated by the Lishman Health Foundation. Our goal is to raise $5,000.

To help get the word out, please share this with all friends and family.

Thank you for your support!

The contribution is a memorial donation for Dr WGA Maxwell (dec) and ideally it would be directed to the Quality in End-of-Life Care project.
