One in four adults experience mental illness, and many more of us know and care for people who do. Talking openly about we feel can help.
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 charities. Any support you can offer will be gratefully received and split evenly between the causes.
Day 5 at Glossop Rugby Club
Day 4 TFIF😎Had loads of conversations and donations made today. The ball really does get people asking and talking!
Day 3 - Running the taps
Team Dean Clough
Day 2 at workThe quantity of donations received for Ukraine at Dean Clough today has overwhelmed us! We've been inundated all afternoon with van loads and boot fulls of donations from all over It was all hands on deck to get it all safely stored ready to sort and ship. An extra 3kg ball was just what I needed with all the tonnes of supplies and clothing received. Hey ho...the show must go on!. Photos to follow😎
Let the challenge begin
