    Story

    I am taking on a challenge to cycle 10000 miles in 1 year to raise awareness and money for MindtheMen, a men's mental health support group!

    I have never been one to talk about what's going on in my mind or how I'm feeling and always just kept pushing it down, trying to forget about it hoping it would just go away as i felt ashamed about it and thought i am the only one out there feeling like this, but it took its toll and ultimately ended up with me trying to end it all.

    I discovered MindtheMen and took the first step to try and take control of my life again, they were extremely supportive and made me feel comfortable talking about my situation in confidence. I felt reassured as the men there are going through or have been through what I'm dealing with so I don't feel as isolated about it.

    Please support me and help raise funds for this group who have not only saved my life and many more men but are striving to break down the stigma around men's mental health.

      Hi all, I thought I would post a wee update on my progress. I have passed the 500 mile mark already and feeling great! Only done one big run and that was to Tarbet near the top of Loch Lomond, If anyone has Strava you can track my progress on there too. I also want to say a big thank you for all your donations, support and kind words, it really means a lot. Please share the message as much as you can as we want to get men talking about their mental health and break the stigma around it. Thanks :-)
