The past 18 months have been anything but easy. Our work and home routines were completely changed and with that, the many people felt their mental health was hugely affected. In fact REaD Group has been supporting The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) since 2019. But as a charity that supports people who are battling mental health issues, the events of the last 18 months has made it even more pertinent to put our energies into our fundraising for CALM this year.
At the end of last year the charity recorded that the number of people taking their own lives each week hit a high of 94 – and 75% of those are men. To support this incredible charity and spread the word, we decided to raise much needed funds and awareness of this shocking statistic. The 94 Challenge was not going to be an easy one, but the team rallied together and took on some incredibly challenges!
The REaD running club collectively ran 94 miles!
And our very own strong man Adam lifted 94 tonnes!
We also saw the team take on:
- 94k in a week
