‘I've created this page because I want to make a difference,’ Schapelle wrote a fundraising page on Everyday Hero.
‘I'm inspired by the work of Suicide Prevention Australia and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in The Sunday Mail Bridge to Brisbane 2018.
‘Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button,’ Schapelle wrote.
Posting about her fundraising efforts on her Instagram page, Schapelle shared a photo of herself in black joggers and a t-shirt – clutching her beloved dog Lucille.
She appeared to be looking fitter than ever in snaps – which come more than four years after Schapelle was released Kerobokan prison in Bali where she was held following her drug smuggling conviction.
‘The more people that know about Suicide Prevention Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family,’ Schapelle added on her fundraising page.
‘Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!’
The Bridge to Brisbane fun run – which takes place on Sunday, 26 August - is Queensland's largest fun run.
