Emma Conquers Machu Pichu for Awareness of Mood Disorders

Story

 

Hey everyone,

Last year I went on the adventure of a lifetime and I climbed Mt Kilimajaro in Africa for Alzheimer's on behalf of my late Grandpa Jack. The night before I went on that incredible journey, I started thinking..."What next?" 1 challenge was just not enough. I was addicted before I began! And here I am, heading off on the next big adventure - PERU CHALLENGE 2012.

Peru Challenge 2012 will be trekking aloing the ancient Incan trails to the incredible Machu Pichu. On 20th October, 2012, I'll be embarking on the Peru Challenge through Inspired Adventures and am raising funds for Blackdog Institute.

Each year, Blackdog aim to advance the understanding, diagnosis and management of depression and Bipolar Disorder and improve the lives of those affected by these mood disorders. Please help me in my cause by donating through my page.

I've chosen to do this with Black Dog Institute in honour of my late Grandma, Doris Lovell. My dear Grandma lived with depression for the majority of her life. She wrote diaries from the age of 13 and I have since been reading them and the insight into what it's like to live with a mood disorder such as depression is heart wrenching. Every day is often a struggle. We are fortunate now to live in a time where great organisations like Black Dog Institute are there to support us and inform us of ways to get help. Grandma was lucky to have received support from family and medicine at the time but the understanding was just not there, and still isn't. It's so important to raise awareness about these unfortunate and debilitating disorders and give support to those who need it most.

I feel so passionately about this cause and can't wait to help Black Dog Institute with their great work. I've been personally affected by mood disorders as well as had very dear friends and family suffer. Unfortunately, I've also lost family and close friends due to mood disorders. It's an important issue - but we can make a difference and help those in need.
