Daily 2.6-mile run challenge for HUMEN

Mental health is a topic that I hold dear to my heart. I, have suffered in silence from a young age and never felt I truly had the opportunity to seek help. My health had recently reached a critical point in my life. It was to the point that I was admitted into The Nightingale Hospital in order to prioritise my own health. Since discharged, I have been continuing my journey. Moving forward with healing and strength. 

I feel lucky enough to have discovered @HUMENorg through social media. I can definitely identify with the fact that it is not easy to speak up, especially with a group of strangers. However, HUMEN has truly created a sense of community for me and you quickly don’t feel like the people you’re sharing with are strangers but others who can emphasise, making me feel less alone in my struggles.

The idea behind my 'Daily 2.6 mile run challenge for HUMEN' which is part of the #TwoPointSixChallenge to save our charities, is to run from the Peter Pan statue (Hyde Park - London) to the Nightingale Hospital and back again every single day from 26/04/20 until my 25th birthday which will be on 27/05/20 (following U.K. government guidelines).

With 75% of all UK suicides being male HUMEN is dedicated to leading the movement to improve and maintain men’s mental health.

Providing an accessible and preventative solution to men suffering in silence and dying too young. We are striving to change the narrative until prevention over the crisis approach is the norm, not the exception. The HUMEN Space: Gym for the Mind, are anonymous and non-clinical spaces for men to talk, listen, and connect on a regular basis.

Our vision is to create a space for the world where we don’t wait for people to reach a mental crisis before getting the help they deserve!

Please will you join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of HUMEN and every single donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this because that means so much to me!

I will be updating you all on my progress daily through Instagram @iamedwardldn   - Tune in! And follow
