We educate about mental fitness & stigma to prevent suicide in communities


State of Mind Sport harness the power of sport to raise awareness about mental health and strive to improve the mental fitness of the population with the goal of preventing suicide

In 2020 there were approximately 800,000 people around the world who took their own life and this means that one person every 40 seconds took their own life. State of Mind’s roots are based in rugby league and union and during any game of rugby there will be 120 people around the world who take their own life.

That is why the 40 (one person taking their own life every 40 seconds) 120 (number of people taking their own life during every 80- minute rugby game) challenge is being attempted.

There are a number of ways you can attempt this challenge to suit your own limits to raise money for State of Mind Sport

1. 40 hours walking /running / cycling 120 miles
2. 40 hours walking /running / cycling 120 kilometres (75 miles)
3. 40 days to walk 120 miles / km (3 miles / 5km or 3km per day)
4. 40 miles walking / running / cycling in 120 hours (5 days)

The first event to launch this years challenge is the St Helens 10km race where 20 runners will be taking part on March 6th

You can mix and match as many variations of 40/120 to suit your own needs and we aim to use Mental Health Awareness week 9th-15th May as the main focus but you can start whenever you like.

Thank you for reading this and any support you can give will be gratefully received
