In 2020 I am participating in the Pain Revolution Rural Outreach Tour to raise awareness around persistent pain in regional towns across Australia. Currently 1 in 5 Australians lives with persistent pain, and less than 10% get the help they need to recover.
The tour is a 750km cycling event over 7 days. Each day we stop in at country towns between Geelong and Wangaratta in Victoria and provide seminars and events that explore the current evidence around persistent pain. The money raised goes towards providing opportunities for more Local Pain Educators (LPE) in rural communities. LPE's undergo training and mentoring in pain education and then provide these services to their local community.
As a LPE in Southern Western Australia I have seen firsthand how this program has impacted my community by encouraging clinicians across all disciplines to work together to support people living with persistent pain to help kickstart their self recovery journey using evidence based tips and tricks.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the ‘Give Now’ button. The more people that know about Pain Revolution, the greater their impact, so please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot.
