Mark Hawes

Climbing for CFA Montrose

Hi. During September and October I’ll be taking part in a million steps for mental health and helping to raise $500,000 to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues.

Please help me “Step up to fight depression, PTSI and suicide” by sponsoring me below.

Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar donated will go to mental health.

So far, I've raised $640 of my $1,000 fundraising goal.

I've completed 3,229 steps towards our overall goal of 1,000,000 steps.

    Thanks Trudi, that is really very kind of you. It is a good cause, PTSI and other mental issues are quite often not obvious but can be very debilitating, I know through personal experience. Sue and I will be hitting the stairs at home and any that we can find nearby for both fun and benefit in a good cause over the next month. xx
