On Sunday 17th May Tim Dare took on the great ocean road and achieved not only an amazing marathon time but big things for his local community. He has currently raised $6200 and is still going strong. This amount will supply over 100 copies of our educational resource Red Chocolate Elephants: For Children Bereaved by Suicide to local schools and community groups around Colac in Victoria.
