Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
We are a group of 10 rugby players from Medicals Rugby Club in Newcastle attempting to raise £1000 to support the charity Mind. Tragically, in December 2017 our teammate and friend Marcus Colville decided to end his own life. We want to do more for mens mental health. It is the single biggest killer of men in the UK under the age of 45. Through fundraising, we hope to raise money for the charity Mind. If you want to see what your money can do please go to their website https://www.tynesidemind.org.uk/ to see all the fantastic work they do.
Not only do we hope to raise £1000 for Mind, but we want to keep the conversation of mental health going. We believe the stigma of mens mental health needs breaking down and we all need to be aware of the support available if life becomes too much.
Last summer, Giles Themans, Alex Hayton and Fenn Newsome completed an amazing cycle from Land's End to John o'Groats raising both awareness and money for mental health. We want to continue this fundraising/awareness effort that they started and have decided to take on a different endeavour. They travelled the length of the country so we have decided to attempt to climb the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales. To make this a challenge, we are trying to complete this in 24 hours from June 7th 2019 - June 8th 2019.
It would be amazing if you could donate any amount to our cause, if you cannot do that just have a conversation with your friend about mental health and make sure they know that it is okay, not to be okay.
