What inspired you to take on your Inspired Adventure with BCNA?

My mum inspired me to take on this challenge. 12 months ago she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I watched the strongest women I know crumble. Whilst mum crumbled BCNA wrapped their caring and supportive hands around her and helped her get through one of her toughest life journeys. I want to help BCNA help other women the way they helped my mum.

How are you feeling about the challenge ahead? Have you ever been to Central Australia before?

I am excited! I enjoy being physically active and have a great love for the outdoors! I haven’t been to Central Australia before so I am really looking forward to it!

What have been some of the highlights of your fundraising experience so far?

We are in the early stages of fundraising, however it has been a blast working with my parents (who are walking with me) to organise some great events in the community.

What have been your biggest challenges in taking on an Inspired Adventure? How did you overcome this?

One of the biggest challenges I am facing is being confident in approaching people and telling our story! I have found that by being able to share my training journey on social media platforms I have been able to build the confidence I require to speak about it openly with people.

Have you noticed any changes or transformation in your life since taking on your first adventure?

Since taking on this adventure I have gained a great drive and passion to reach my goals.

What are you most looking forward to about your upcoming adventure?

Get out there and do it! This is my first time doing a challenge like this and I have found the team at Inspired Adventures to be of great support!
