We raise funds for community projects to honour fallen Victoria Police members


I am a current serving member with Victoria Police and over the past few years I have observed friends and work colleagues leaving the job due to PTSD. Some have committed suicide whilst some are on a long waiting list of up to 18 months for PTSD treatment.

It not only effects them personally it also effects family and friends

23 years ago I recall my first day walking into the Victoria Police Academy and hearing the words -

"'Welcome, you are just about to have a front row seat to the greatest show on earth, You will see and encounter everything first hand, You will deal with situations that no one would think could or should ever occur. You will have to make split decisions on the spot and have no time to think about it. You will just do it"

My campaign with the assistance of The Blue Ribbon Foundation is to raise awareness and funds to battle the black dog

Thank you to the Victoria Police Association, ESSSuper, Bank VIC, Victoria Police legacy and my triathlon club - Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club who have assisted in helping me spread awareness

My aim is to raise funds towards the new initiative with the Blue Ribbon Foundation Police Assistance Dog Program where we are supporting Assistance dogs for our retired veterans whilst also raising awareness for the need of a specialised emergency services clinic.

To date the #fighingptsdvicpol campaign has raised over $170,000 through the everyday hero account and now the just giving donation platform

All donations raised and donated through this link go direct to the Blue Ribbon Mental Health Fund where you will receive a tax deductible receipt  

I am using exercise and entering various events to promote my campaign.
