Hi, I’m Dean Blackwell and I've created this page because I want to do something amazing to promote a great cause and to honor my sister Jessica who passed away in 2016 from Mental Health related illness. Im going to run 100km from Northam to Perth in under 10 hours on her Birthday this year December the 11th and want to raise $1000 for every kilometer I run.
I need sponsors, volunteers, and of course donors to help pull this off in the best way possible! Please hit me up on 0416926398 if you can help in some way and of course hit the ‘give now’ button to donate.
I'm inspired by the work of Beyond Blue and wanted to support them by raising money. I’m also a FIFO worker and I’m also deeply concerned by the number of FIFO workers who experience mental health issues so Beyond Blue was front of mind when I thought of doing something to help those who face the challenges that my sister did.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Beyond Blue, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
If you’re keen to join me on the day and run some of the 100kms with me, we are ‘selling’ the opportunity at $50 donations/kilometer so if you want to run 5kms with me, you need to donate $250! 10kms, $500! Etc.
Please hit up my Instagram page @deanblackwell13 or Facebook page under Dean Blackwell for more regular updates!
Embargo Bar are hosting us for a post run celebration, open to the public so if you’re free come on down and help raise some extra money and awareness for beyond blue. Located at 306 Riverside Drive, East Perth things will kick off from around 6pm. There will be some prizes up for grabs and good times all round!
