Purple Bridge Climb Challenge

I am being BRAVE and have signed up for the ultimate Make March Purple challenge. On March 26 I will climb the Story Bridge as it lights up PURPLE to help end epilepsy.

I am taking on this challenge to support the 280 Australians that are diagnosed with epilepsy each week. I am raising funds for Epilepsy Queensland so that they can continue to deliver essential support services.

Please help me reach my fundraising target by making a donation on this page. Your donation means the world to me and to everyone impacted by epilepsy.

If you would like to join me on the bridge limited places are still available. Register here


Thanks again for supporting my challenge and for helping to Make March Purple for epilepsy!

I'm fundraising for Sophie’s Story

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions affecting 50 million people worldwide

Every week in Australia, 280 people are diagnosed with epilepsy and sadly 5 Australians will die from epilepsy each week.

I am raising funds to ensure Queenslanders with epilepsy have access to the support, training, and information they need to live well with epilepsy.

With access to the right treatment around 70% of people with epilepsy can gain control over their seizures

Physical & Mental Health Achievement!

Thursday 25th Mar
Our favourite thing to do together pre surgery was walking our dog, Evie. After the necessary crucial rest time, we set out together for a very little walk. Soph was exhausted but absolutely excited by her achievement, a little positive push in the right direction for physical and mental health.

Thank you to my Sponsors
