    Don't have time to donate right now?


    To help support communities through this global mental health crisis, we (Kelvin Buchanan and Matt Ruse) will start an epic 7 day run from the top, to the bottom of Wales. We're aiming to complete 7 marathons in 7 days, over 330,000 steps each, plus guest runners who will run with us to complete the remaining 330,000 steps. That's 10p per step to reach a target of £100k where all money donated will go to Talk Club, a registered charity (1194033) who are creating talking and listening groups across the world, important steps to help men in all communities become more mentally fit.

      Thank you all so much for supporting us and giving us the inspiration to complete this incredible adventure. In the end, we ran, walked and crawled 1,210,586 steps, or 180 miles, or 7 marathons, or 567 blisters, take your pick. From the top of Wales to the bottom. We couldn't have done it without you and we've raised a total of £7417 for the men's mental health charity Talk Club, and your donations will change the lives of men in communities everywhere! From Kelvin, Matt and all at Talk Club, Thank you!
