My name is Robyn. I am 43 years old, and in 2016 I was diagnosed with PTSD.
I suffered flashbacks, felt isolated, and just wanted to give up. Then, on the advice of a fantastic psychologist, I took up tennis. Tennis helped steer me away from the constant battle in my head, and more importantly, I realised that I didn’t feel so alone anymore. At this point, I knew that so much more could be done to help people very much like myself. My idea soon became a reality as Breakpoint 2019 was born. It’s a very unique event, a tough physical and mental challenge, and it will have a life-changing impact for those that will benefit. Let the challenge begin. Are you ready to help?
