Story

Join us on an extraordinary adventure as Chris Hill embarks on his biggest run yet – a monumental 1,500km from John O'Groats to Lands End, spanning 30 days from 26th May to 24th June 2024. This incredible feat isn't just about covering the distance; it's a powerful mission to raise awareness for mental health and addiction issues across the UK.

🌈 The Cause:

Chris is running in memory of his beloved twin brother, Rob Hill, who tragically lost his life to an accidental drug overdose in 2014. As we approach the 10th anniversary of Rob's passing on 26th May, Chris aims to honour his brother's memory by raising £10,000 for The Rob Hill Foundation.

👟 The Run:

Imagine running 900 miles in 30 days, averaging six to eight hours each day, from the northern tip of John O'Groats, stopping off in Edinburgh, Halifax, Birmingham, Bristol, Tintagel, and finally reaching the southern tip at Lands End. This journey isn't just about covering ground; it's about making every step count for mental health and addiction awareness. Chris will be giving out free 7-Day Beat Addiction Plans to help people as he travels down the country, and will be encouraging people to open up free addiction workshops and support groups.

💙 Why Donate?

Your contribution goes beyond supporting Chris on his incredible run. It fuels The Rob Hill Foundation's mission to provide addiction workshops and support groups for people across the UK. Your generosity directly impacts the lives of those struggling with addiction and mental health challenges.

About The Rob Hill Foundation:

The Rob Hill Foundation helps people beat addiction to both substances and activities; as well as empowering them to deal effectively with anxiety, stress and depression. This extends to dealing with trauma, any fear-based conditions and OCD.

The charity targets people who struggle to find help through the health service, those on benefits, those at risk of homelessness and those who are already homeless; but workshops are open to all.

The charity has delivered workshops to service users of local homeless charities in the Woolwich (London) and Sidcup (Kent) areas in the UK. These were extremely well received and saw service users recover from life-long addictions. This has allowed many to consider seeking employment or training and taking up other offers of help and support.

In addition, the charity runs an expanding network of free workshops and support groups helping people deal with their addictions. Chris Hill and his team of trained workshop leaders deliver Chris' Beat My Addictions recovery programme and those attending receive ongoing support both from the workshop leaders and other members of the group at different stages of recovery. This builds a ‘community’ around the individual, which lessens the sense of isolation and improves confidence to progress.

The charity’s vision is to expand the workshops to other parts of London and other major cities in the UK and eventually for the work to have a worldwide reach.
