I’m running my very first official race! It's the Ultra Night Run 10km on 16th August and I’m fundraising for HeadsUpGuys, a Canadian charity that focuses on providing resources for men battling mental health concerns, namely depression. Men face particularly isolating barriers when it comes to talking about mental health and making a full recovery, and HeadsUpGuys is actively helping to break these barriers down and ultimately reduce the distressingly high male suicide rate.
If you would like to help them out, please consider sponsoring a ginger to run 10km in the oppressing summer heat – I can’t put into words what it would mean to me.
If you would like to talk about the charity, what they do, the issues they address, or my motivation for running for this charity, I would be more than happy to have a chat.
