Lion treks from Darwin to Adelaide for a good cause

On the first day of May in 2024, a remarkable journey will begin.

Lion Chris Woods will step out from Darwin, destination Adelaide, her purpose a heartfelt one – to uplift and support causes that hold a special place in her heart. 

Along with her treasured Tenterfield Lions Club, organisations that are devoted to mental health (Beyond Blue, Dads 4 Kids, and Black Dog Institute) resonate deeply with Chris.

Her son’s brave fight to gain custody of his children has etched these causes into her mind and are the motivation behind her trek to Adelaide. 

“Witnessing the struggles of young fathers like my son, I felt compelled to stand by these charities that have been our beacon of hope,” Chris shares.

Accustomed to walking long distances as a magazine distributor, Chris is no newcomer to this challenge. 

Her determination has previously led her to complete multiple Relay For Life events, as a tribute to her late husband’s courageous battle with cancer.

Chris now embarks on a 3,000-kilometre journey – a testament to her resilience.

She hopes to illuminate the tireless efforts of these organisations dedicated to mental health awareness and support for Aussie dads.

You can follow this heart-stirring journey on Facebook and join Chris in making a difference.

Donations will go towards Chris’ chosen organisations, including 10% going to the Tenterfield Lions Club, who will put the donations towards mental health projects in their community.
