Sydney Colour Run - the happiest 5km on the planet!

Nexia fundraising for WINGS of Hope - Sunday 8th February was a fantastic day for Nexia to participate in the Colour Run Sydney event, the "happiest 5km on the planet”, which it was in every way. The sun was shining, the music was pumping and the crowd was amazing at Cathy Freeman Park in Homebush. The Nexia walkers/runners were happy to start the run in their pristine white T-shirts but when they emerged at the other end they were smiling even more in their rainbow coloured T-shirts!

How did you come to know WINGS of Hope? 

Nexia Court & Co have broken down their CSR calendar into quarters.  Amanda and I were given the focus of mental health.   When researching who we would like to support, it was important to us to find an organisation that supported those that are sometimes overlooked in the mental health area. We wanted to find someone who’s prime focus was on reaching and supporting as many people as possible.

As a survivor of Suicide, it was particularly important to me to find an organisation that was personal and that cared for their members.  Losing my 17 year old sister 12 years ago was one of the toughest things I have experienced. Being the eldest, I felt that I had to be the strong one. My parents had lost a child and my 13 year old youngest sister, had found her.  There was support for my parents available, through support groups. However, finding tools or assistance for a bereaved 13 year old dealing with anxiety and grief, was extremely hard.

Supporter Profile - Wendy McWilliam

How did you come to know WINGS of Hope?

I was bereaved by suicide over 10 years ago when my mother took her life. After years of managing my grief alone, my Aunty came across a bereavement counselling group. I eventually joined the Restoring the Heartbeat of Hope program, which is still being facilitated by Dr Diana Sands PhD. The group program supported me with ways to communicate to my family, friends and colleagues about my loss.

WINGS of Hope Christmas Appeal

Dear Supporters of WINGS of Hope 

Christmas is traditionally seen as a joyous time but we must remember that for many it can also be a lonely time. For those without a network of family and friends close by, or if they have been through difficult times during the year. 

This Festive Season, instead of giving a gift to a friend or loved one we hope that you can make a contribution to our page to support projects for people bereaved by suicide. Some of WINGS of Hope’s community have done this in memory of a lost loved one at Christmas too.

Thank you for your ongoing support and wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas. 

Thank you!
