We #TackleTheStigma around mental health to improve mental wellbeing across the UK


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

At the age of 58 I am taking on the biggest physical and mental challenge of my life.

From May 8th I will be running for 70 days in a row from Lands' End to John O Groats, a route that is 1000 miles in distance.

I am doing this challenge for various reasons.

1. To prove that age is no barrier.

2. To support men and women across the rugby community through the amazing work of Looseheadz

3. To become the first New Zealander to complete this run.

You can follow my journey on Youtube with daily Vlogs from the run at

You can follow the build up to my run, check out my training details and watch as every day unfolds.

If this run inspires you in any way, then give a thought to helping us out, thanks so much in advance.

LooseHeadz Foundation have set ourselves the simple, yet ambitious goal of placing a ‘LooseHead’ in each of the 1,800 rugby clubs in the UK (and hopefully one day beyond). This mental health lead can then push our prevent, promote, educate and signpost process within their own club.
