My Story.....

As a survivor of sexual abuse I know how it can effect your whole life from the moment it happens.

I was 5 years old when I was first sexually abused and the abuse continued on and off until I was 25.

People don’t realise just how seriously sexual assault can affect every part of your life.

For so many years I tried to supress and forget,  but it would always find its way back to haunt me and send me into dark spirals.

I didn't want to live with these flashbacks, I didn't want to live!

Early last year I brought my living hell into the light, came out about the traumatic things that had happened to me and started seeking    professional help.

Having to face it and relive it sent me on my biggest   darkest downward spiral, so trying to escape I ended up a drug addict living between crisis accommodation, a shed and the streets of Melbourne, praying for an end.

I Eventually “Awoke” and  realised that the only way forward was through, so I moved back to Mildura late last year and dedicated my time to my therapy, my    research, my wellbeing, ME.

During some personal       research I came across The BraveHearts Foundation and instantly wanted to be part of this amazing cause, But I  didn't know how to help all I knew is I supported their  mission to make Australia the safest place to raise a child through Education,           Empowerment and           Protection.

So without any real thought, this 31 year old who had never run signed up to do 6 half  marathons and a full marathon in 7 days in 7 states to raise much needed funds and  awareness.

I only had 6 months to train and fundraise, with the support of family, friends, the        community & my major    sponsors (TechLab, Meg Hume Remedial Massage, Droffelar Electrical, Totally Wear, GJ Gardener Homes, Fosseys   Ginporium, The Athletes Foot, Artworx, Mallee Foods, OneStop   Wholesaler, City Centre Chiropractic, Brendon Ede Pest  Management and Instyle Hair).

I managed to run 4 half     marathons, a 30km and 2 full marathons in 7 days in 7 states and I raised $10,000 !! And more importantly with the help of Sunraysia Daily, Mildura Weekly, 99.5 HitFM, 106.7 HotFM and River 1467AM I helped spread the word and raised much needed awareness to help children and survivors alike know they are not alone and can step into the light with support.

Coming out and seeking       professional help has been the best thing I have done.

Connecting with such an     influential and important        foundation, BraveHearts has given me Purpose and the   ability to help others.

The people I met on my 777 journey (my 777 fam) have given me support and         inspiration to continue.

My family, friends, sponsors and all who supported me through this 777 have given me hope in humanity.

I hope my story inspires you to help and be part of the best cause...KIDS.          -FVM-
