Okay, so this hard for me to write. I can feel my heart beating faster than it should be. However, this charity that I am raising money for, AXIS counselling, do some extraordinary and outstanding work for the people of our small town, and as such they mean a lot to me. First off, let's start at the beginning. Towards the back end of 2018, I met a boy and he would soon become my boyfriend. All was good in the world, or so I thought. Flashforward to May 22nd 2019, we are on holiday and had gone out to dinner together, a few drinks were consumed that night. I won't go into horrid details. Alas, I was drunk, tired and lethargic and so I struggled to push the 60kg worth of weight that was my partner off of me. Yes, you did read that right. I was raped. I didn't want to believe what had just happened to me was real, and so I buried the memory of it for seven months, right up until the night of December 28th 2019. By this point we had been broken up for three months. It took me a few months to get the courage to report this assault but I did. And so, this is where AXIS counselling services come in. From the moment I was referred I was given an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor, who I must say is amazing at what she does. This lady made sure I had the support I needed and ensured I had a host of ways to manage the affects of my trauma. There is more of a description of what AXIS does in the link I am attaching below, and so this why I want to raise money for this organisation by hiking to Mt Everest base camp. Without AXIS i really don't know where I'd be. So please, if you've gotten this far, donate - even if its next to nothing, every little bit helps support this amazing organisation and it's workers within it's walls. Chances are, whether you realise or not, there is somebody you know who has been affected by rape and/or sexual assault. I refuse to ever feel the way I did that night again. But one thing I refuse to do is let others suffer the same way, I may not be able to stop sexual assault, but I can be a shoulder to cry on, to vent to, and to be there for others who may be struggling. I have a voice, and I will not be silenced. Peace and long life. https://www.gofundme.com/f/everest-charity-walk-april-2020
