COMMUNITY: Borough and Jacob Pearce Team up to Fight Mental Health

The Port Melbourne Football were delighted to recently play a significant part in the journey of Jacob Pearce (pictured, above), who walked 375 kilometres from Barrum on the New South Wales border to the Port Melbourne Football Club in March, which subsequently raised $88,000 for suicide-prevention charity ‘Alive’.

Jacob’s story started over two years ago when he miraculously survived a fall from a 22-storey building on a drunken buck’s night.

He landed on the second-floor tin roof with pierced lungs, a fractured pelvis and fractured arms and woke up from an induced coma two days later.

“I’ve battled with my mental health for most my life to be honest,” Pearce said.

“I’d lost family members and friends to suicide, and after my accident I always thought that I wanted to give back in some capacity.”

It was soon after that Jacob implemented ‘Pearcy’s Pledge to Mental Health’, and committed to walking the staggering 375-kilometre journey across ten gruelling and painful days, with an initial aim of raising $10,000.

Those expectations would soon be, not just eclipsed, but completely blown out of the water as support came for his cause from far and wide.

His walk officially finished with his ‘Homecoming’ event on Sunday 17th March at the Sandridge Events Centre, and featured over 300 people in attendance with musical and comedic entertainment; as well as Jacob outlining his unfiltered life story to the jam-packed Centre.

“The aim for the money ($10,000) was to kick start one or two mental health projects within schools, but now these funds can go so much further than that which is just mind-blowing,” Pearce said.

He said the club as a whole were a tremendous support for his Pledge.

“I reached out to the Port Melbourne Football Club in November last year, and outlined what I wanted to do.

“They were the first footy club that I reached out to because I’m based in Port Melbourne, and basically got a response straight away and they were delighted to help out with the event,” he said.

Pearce is an electrician by trade, but said that the next step for him would be to continue his work of helping to smash the stigma of mental health in the community through the ‘Alive’ project.

“I’m now taking on a managerial and promotions role with Alive, and helping out with a lot of their workshops, which is very exciting.”

Jacob’s Facebook page ‘Pearcy’s Pledge’ and Instagram page (@cobpearce) feature all details for any Borough supporters wishing to support this wonderful cause.

We would like to thank and congratulate Jacob for his efforts and hope to be a part of other such projects in the future.
