Mick Weber support driver/head of logistics and Rose Weber founder/ walker of the CSR
Mick and Rose Weber started their walk of the Canning Stock Route in July 2014. Unfortunately a few weeks in Mick became very unwell and had to be flown out for emergency surgery, which put a hold on their CSR Trek 2014.
Just like life there are always bumps in the road, their aim is to never
give up, you have to adapt and move on but don't give up.
Everything happens for a reason, by
putting their trek on hold till May 2015 it opened up many wonderful opportunites; A growing number of volunteers joined them in their journey of creating awareness, including 4 more walkers and two more support vehicles, as well as a group
of people who do all the behind the scenes work.
Our One Step at a Time Members are:
The team of walkers:
Whitmarsh, Jo Graham, Cathy Williams, Samuel Lancaster and Rose Weber.
Weber, Saxon Weber, Malcolm Williams and Crystal Bevan.
The walk is not to break any world records or for personal glory it is a team walk, each walker has their own personal goals they want to achieve, but they are all there for a comon goal - Creating awareness about mental illness
and suicide prevention. Collectively the walkers did 3500kms between them.
The Canning Stock Route is a metaphor for life even though the road
is tough, never give up set your own goals in life no matter how many bumps there are on the way. If you need to change directions in how you achieve your life's goals then embrace that and lean on your support network to achieve your dreams. Never be afraid
to ask for help if you need it. Life is a challenge for many but whatever your dreams or personal goals in life are take it One Step at a time.
Mick and Rose are ordinary Australians who have found each other and openly admit they are closer than soul mates. They also have 5 grown up children whom they are very proud off. They feel so fortunate to
live in a country that has so much culture and opportunities for anyone who is willing to accept a challenge. They would like to acknowldgeand all fellow Australians followers and supporters world wide for the support they have received.
Mick and Rose Weber also do a lot of public speaking appointments talking about mental illness, suicide prevention, depression, anxiety and their own life's
experiences with mental illness and suicide. They hope with their grass roots approach with a taboo subject it will break down the stigma, so anyone in a dark place will get the help they so desperately need. If you would like to them
to come and make an appearance at your event, please contact them direct.
