- 25 days to go
Don't have time to donate right now?
STRONGEST MARATHON! This year i take on something i thought of a while back that would push my physical capabilities but even more so, test my mental endurance. I Cannot do it alone. i need as many of you as possible on July 25th, to run, walk, cycle skate or even scoot part of the journey with me. So what am i doing?
I'm running a HALF MARATHON, straight into an u90kg Strongman competition, before finishing the day with a second HALF MARATHON. I couldn't think of anything more testing than having to push the boundaries of fitness, strength, determination and more importantly... Community support....
All donations will be split down the middle for both charities. unless stated in your comments section.
So let's talk why.... last year we raised over £2500 for West Sussex Mind by doing the Skateboard marathon and then 6 days later a few burpees (2200) to say thank you. This year i'd like to continue support this amazing charity as the work they are doing locally within our county and our community is priceless support for those who are brave enough to ask for support and help with their mental health.
So why are we sharing it with Strongmen UK... Strongmen are there to support Men following bereavement. Grief can cause severe mental and phsyical health conditions which are often overlooked and often ignored especially in men. This charity means so much to me for so many reasons. On December 19th i did a Workout with one of the co-founders Efrem Brynin. 10mile run straight into 150 burpee pull ups. We chatted the last 3 miles away about our dislike of running, getting through it together and one foot in front of the other, he was right, we were right. we needed each other - just to complete a horrible workout, so imagine what support you would need going through bereavement without knowing you do.
Only 12 Days later on December 31st i found out exactly what it means to be suffering the loss of someone so close. Completely out the blue a massive influence and incredible man in my life was taken from us with no warning. I'd had 13 Christmas's in a row with this family and because of COVID we couldnt this year.. and now without knowing it, there was never going to be another Christmas together. He was my closest friends Father. Someone so close i could call family, i lived with them for years and they treated me like their own... Who was there for me. Efrem - Strongmen. I'm blessed that i'm already at one with talking about my mental health, but this was different. Strongmen is different. it creates a unique support group for mens going through many different forms of Grief and they care.
So it's fitting this year we support both charities and more importantly, GET PEOPLE TALKING.
Rest easy Tim.
