In this episode we take a trip down under to the Land of Oz and have a talk-about with the spirited Katie Visco. Katie is on a mission of self-discovery and self-love, which is interwoven into her passion for running and community.
She joins the program to share her recent adventure in Australia, participating in the 1000 Miles to Light, a 1,000-mile relay race to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health services.
You’ll also hear about Katie’s cycle-supported run across Australia - a 2,210-mile endeavor over a four-month period. Kate is also the second-youngest female ever to run across the United States.
One in four young Australians are experiencing a mental health difficulty. Yet, of these, 70% won’t seek help. You can help make a difference in a young person’s life today. Learn more about Reachout Australia and contribute if at all possible.
