I’m running a rail tour from Sydney to Goulburn NSW on October 2018, named “The Thru Runners Tour”, which is commemorating over 40 years of service for the mighty “C” Class diesel-electric locomotive, and 30 years of them running from their home state of Victoria to NSW.
Like many other rail enthusiasts, I have long been a fan of this locomotive type, and I actually ran a similar C class rail tour in 2015 to help raise money and awareness for The Cancer Council, in which many thousands of dollars were raised for the cause.
So now its time to do it all again!!, however this time I am raising money and awareness for a equally important cause, being beyondblue.
Because we got so much on the last tour, I feel the goal should be $10,000 this time!, so hopefully with your help, we can reach the target, and continue the fight against depression, anxiety and suicide. As there is not to many people in our communities, where these issues have not affected ourselves, friends or loved ones, in some way.
All donations raised via this site, will be 100% donated to beyondblue, and I will be having a “live” handover of the raised funds in the days after the tour runs, via the tours facebooks page, a link will be provided for this.
I am working directly with beyondblue with this tour, and all monies raised will of course go to helping those that are suffering from depression, anxiety from with in, as our minds health is just as important as our body’s health.
Please know that any donation, be it large or small is greatly appreciated, and will go a long way to helping out those who are suffering from within.
Please visit the tours Facebook site to keep up to date on plans for the trip, ticket prices etc.
