Stairways to Healing
Stairways to Healing
Those who know me understand that 2015 was a huge year in setting & meeting my personal fitness goals. As a result I have decided to challenge myself further this July, by running in the 2016 Stadium Stomp, while fundraising for ASCA.
Elisha photoAs a survivor myself, I've been a member now of ASCA for over 10 years. During this time, ASCA has provided me with extremely valuable resources that have all contributed greatly towards my quest for healing. It was this support that allowed me the space & knowledge to overcome my greatest personal challenges. Although healing remains an ongoing process, my driving force has always been a strong desire to light the way for survivors still in search of their own voice. I firmly believe that of all the resources we possess, our voice is our most important asset & remains the key to unlocking our potential.  
It is my hope that in raising money for ASCA, that I might be able to shed a small amount of light on a charity that over the years has meant to great deal to me & who's work continues to inspire our community. 
SCG Stadium StompOn 17th July I plan to complete the 2016 Stadium Stomp; a challenge to climb all 6,300 stairs within the SCG complex. While I expect it to be a physically challenging goal, I know that as a survivor, I have the capacity & resources to overcome any of life's challenges with determination, focus & drive.  
For those who don't know me personally, I'm 33 & work as an International Flight Attendant with a strong passion for travel, photography & fitness. I've traveled to over 50 countries & live in Sydney with my best friend who will run alongside me on the day.
I would be extremely grateful if you could take the time to show your support for ASCA by making a secure donation. I would also really appreciate it if you could share the details of my run & link to the donation page, so that I can hopefully reach as many people as possible.

    ASCA fundraiser doing tough mudderLast November (2015) I participated in Tough Mudder, a 20km fun run with 25 obstacles to complete.  It doesn’t sound that fun but it really was.  You can go at your own pace and the event is geared towards team work.  To make it more interesting I decided to collect money for a worthy charity.  This had the added benefit of motivating me to train more in preparation and it was a great way to document the lead up to the event as well as on the day.   The first step we took was searching for a suitable charity.  We chose ASCA because they are not as well-known as the big charities yet are doing incredible work for adults surviving child abuse.  Second, was to set up an online application to manage the donations.  I was recommended  The setup was very easy and just took a few minutes.  If you take a look at the page here:, you can see that it looks nice without a lot of effort, I just wrote a few lines about ASCA and put up pictures so my supporters could follow my progress leading up to the event.

    The event was a huge success, personally as well as raising a grand total of $913 for ASCA!  I personally felt a lot of satisfaction from completing an event such as Tough Mudder and even better knowing that the money went to a good cause.  A win win.  I thoroughly recommend raising money this way, by challenging yourself to get outside of your comfort zone while doing a good deed such as collecting money for a good cause.  You won’t regret it.

    “It's such a beautiful thing that you are doing. Helping people to get through this.”


    “It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”


    "At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
