My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Mental health and suicide prevention

While I have never exactly suffered with mental health issues, I am concious that I could, and have to make deliberate efforts to maintain healthy habits.
Recently I have had more and more friends go through struggles. A few months ago, my best friend from my time living in Korea lost his battle with mental health. He seemed to have life all figured out: was successful, popular, handsome, had a young son...mental health battles can and do happen to anyone.
To raise money and awareness, I'm going to embark on a solo running challenge where i will run a full marathon (42km) every day in November, 1266km for the month. This will likely push me further than I've ever gone before, but if it raises a few $$$ and helps us break down the bullshit stigma that mental health struggles are a weakness and encourage people to talk, then it will be worth it.
If you are able to help, there are three things you can do in order. 1. Be kind to each other and check in on each other. 2. Join me for a few kms (even if it's virtual). 3. Sponsor me. All donations go to worthy causes.
