Motivation behind run is simply giving back after loss

AFTER losing his sister two years ago, John Causley found out just what Lifeline was all about.

Now, he is giving back to a charity that helped him through an extremely tough time.

"I usually do it about four times each Thursday, but this time I will go for six.

"It is 24km and I think it will probably take me about 2 1/2 hours."

He will start the incline run from the Anglican Church at 7am on April 19.

"Since my sister passed, Lifeline and beyondblue really helped me and my family so I thought I would do something to help out the local people who helped me," he said.

"It's really to raise awareness about mental illness and highlight what a great job Lifeline does in our community."

Mr Causley hopes to raise at least $1000.
