My Story

Katie and Nicole are teaming up to swim the 19.7km from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island. We'd love you to donate $1/km.

We're raising funds for the Black Dog Institute because this swim originally started as a solo attempt by Katie and a duo attempt by Nicole with another swimmer. However Nicole's plans were thwarted by a lack of boat and Katie's plans were thwarted by a relapse. For the first time since being diagnosed with Bipolar Affective Disorder Type II by the Black Dog Institute in 2011 she experienced a depressive episode which really got in the way of her training plan.

So instead, fate brought the swimmer with the boat who couldn't do a solo together with the swimmer without a partner who wanted to do a duo.

The Black Dog Institute provides vital education, research, treatment and community services across Australia in relation to mental ill health. 1 in 5 Australians will experience a period of mental ill health in their lifetime. Which means every Australian will be affected whether as sufferer or supporter in their lifetime. Please help if you can. No donation too small.

Thank You
