THE STORY:

My donation campaign will be based on "BUYING ME A DRINK". Taking the time to simply buy a coffee or beer, sit down and have a conversation could be the first steps, to helping save a life. It could mean the world to that someone struggling to get on with it. I'm lucky to know I had this during my struggles, lucky to have my wife, family and friends. My name is Gibson Sananikone and I'm from Sydney, Australia. The long story short, my awesome wife, Libity gifted me with a surprise trip to New York for late October -early November. She chose this period, because she knew I wanted to run the New York Marathon. I chose to run with the Minding Your Mind foundation as their mission really hits close to home and to my heart. I believe in the mission of Minding Your Mind - ENLIGHTENING ATTITUDES TOWARD MENTAL ILLNESS. I believe in their mission to provide a open minded platform - To welcome that first step to seeking assistance - To be able to enlighten, educate, inform and help those dealing with mental health issues, especially as young adults. It is vital to tackle the issue from grass-roots before it is crisis point, before it is too late. I've battled the downs and doubts a lot as a young adult and in my 30s, was spiraling into a dark-hole. It had gotten worst over the past 2 years, until I finally looked at all the small moments and experiences that had led me here. I went to seek help and took my first step. In seeking the incremental help, education and diagnosis through a Employer Assistance Program things could of turned out a bit differently. One of the most important things I learnt in mental health awreness was to build healthy, balanced, EMPOWERING & consistent routines. One of these habits, is to run daily or do something active daily. Running has allowed me to conquer my inner demons. I really promote physical activity and running for mental health awareness, to grow mindfulness and build vitality. MANY OF YOU WILL KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS LOST THEIR BATTLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH OR ARE IN A DIRE & DARK SITUATION NEEDING HELP. THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN HELP ! THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN BE A VOICE OF REASON ! THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE ! As much as the NYC Marathon is a goal for me - the greater goal & the bigger picture is mental health awareness! Please "BUY ME A DRINK", that's all. Donate that simple small amount. If you go beyond, then thank you! At the end of the day any amount goes a long way !! Cheers from Down Under Gibs
