Me­dia pair dis­cover good rea­son to run

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

BREAK­FAST an­nouncer Heidi An­der­son and Nine News Perth’s Paddy Sweeney will run for Life­line WA in this year’s Run for a Rea­son on Sun­day, May 28, to raise funds for the sup­port and sui­cide preven­tion or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The pair is ea­ger to raise aware­ness of sui­cide preven­tion and cri­sis sup­port ser­vices, a cause par­tic­u­larly mean­ing­ful to Ms An­der­son, who has bravely spo­ken pub­licly about her ex­pe­ri­ence of de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety.

She will run the 4km course for Life­line WA, while Sweeney will run the 21km half marathon.

An­der­son, who works for 92.9, said the char­ity meant a lot to her.

“The sup­port and en­cour­age­ment they showed me af­ter speak­ing about my anx­i­ety pub­licly has been phenomenal,” she said.

For cri­sis or sui­cide preven­tion sup­port, call Life­line on 13 11 14 or to reg­is­ter visit
