To raise money for the mental health charity, Mind, we are taking on a truly insane fitness challenge in July. Day one: trek through New Forest National Park, swim from Hurst Castle to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. Day two: run around the circumference of the Isle of Wight. Day three: swim from Yarmouth back to Hurst Castle, run to Bournemouth beach. A total of 110 miles to run and 4 miles to swim over a long weekend in the summer.
Whether it is ourselves, relatives or friends, or the greater public, we as a group are all aware of the increasing need to tackle rising mental health issues within our society. We want to help Mind continue to do the great work that they have done for over 70 years in giving people with mental health issues the respect, dignity, and support they deserve by raising as much money as we can through completing this event.
We are a group of friends who through our own personal experiences have found a common cause in wanting to raise awareness surrounding mental health and also raise money to help the continued efforts of Mind in alleviating the pain and anguish that too many individuals go through every day.
Our unusual team includes a Doctor, Videographer, Nutritionist/Explorer, an aspiring Barrister, and an Events Manager. You could say, one of the most peculiar groups of people. However, we saw an amazing opportunity to combine our skills and take on an insane adventure and hopefully spark a flame and step towards the bigger picture in the near future.
Please feel free to follow our journey at @primal.kind and we hope you are able to contribute to our cause and also watch us take on the challenge in July!
Thank you very much,
Johnny, Rad, Rachel, Bruno, and Allen
