Story

As I'm sure everyone who knows him is aware, and for all those that don't. My very good friend 'Calum Rowe' took his life last year on 19th August 2017. The anniversary of his passing is getting closer and I wanted to do something to commemorate. Calum struggled with Mental health for a while but it always appeared well hidden whilst he remained simply one of the kindest, most genuine people I've ever met. He was always happy go-lucky and full of laughter and smiles. I know music was important to him (in fact he wore his headphones with music full blast practically everywhere) and he loved to explore! He was my travel buddy and companion and a person who came into my life and finally made me feel that I was valued and appreciated and truly fit in this world. He gave me hope. He was incredibly special, unique and extremely quirky. I loved my best friend. Sadly, I did not know just how bad things truly were. In his last days he was expressing his struggles and put in contact with a Mental Health team. Not long after this; to the heartache of others he gave up the fight. I want to face my fears as Calum would have encouraged and do a skydive for Mental health to help equip others to cope with their challenges. I would really appreciate if you could help me raise the money needed to take part in this and honor of him and other sufferers. On the day of the event I will be writing Calum a message on a balloon and sending it soaring into the sky. Anyone who would like to come along to support is also welcome. Please support me with this great cause!
