What: 1.2 mile swim. 56 mile cycle. 13.1 mile run.
Why: Raising money for SToRMs: The Dan McAllister Foundation. Awareness of suicide and mental health is increasing, the taboo is being challenged, but the problem remains. Too many young people, in particularly young men, are dying from suicide. This is something we can, and need to address. These deaths are avoidable.
When: 7th September
Before we lost Dan on 25th May 2015, I had no idea of the scale of the suicide epidemic in the UK. 84 Men a week in the UK take their own lives.
SToRMs aims to reduce male suicide by:
- Promoting mental wellbeing and emotional resilience from an early age
- Challenge gender stereotypes which prevent men from seeking help
- Facilitate open discussion about suicide
- Highlight the relationship between alcohol and mental wellbeing
