The Medicine Ball Challenge

Even in 2021, there is still a significant stigma attached to mental health problems, including stress, anxiety, PTSD and Depression. I am taking on the Medicine Ball challenge to help break these stigmas and get people talking about their mental health. It's ok to speak up and say i'm not ok.

The challenge involves cuffing a 3kg Medicine Ball to my wrist for 7 days. It may not sound that heavy but being tied to the medicine ball continuously for 7 days is a significant burden. The ball becomes a physical, visual and tangible representation of the invisible burden of mental health so many of us can experience.

The challenge raises money for the following 2 charities. Any support you can offer will be gratefully received and split evenly between the 3 causes.

ABF The Soldiers' Charity

Combat Stress

Why I’m raising money

I am taking part in the medicine ball challenge to raise awareness of mental health within the armed forces after loosing my brother to PTSD but also to raise awareness of the families left behind and the effect it continues to have, to let people know it’s ok to not be ok. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
