Pen-Y-Fan Tractor Tyre Push for Mental Health

IN 2018 6,507 people took their own lives in the Uk alone (from UK.GOV suicide registration statistics) To raise money and awareness for the Mental Health Research UK in the aid of those fighting every single day to cope with any form of mental health that drastically impacts their quality of life, friendships, love, work, and hope I am going to roll a tractor tyre up Pen-Y-Fan unassisted. An official event date is now set 16th September (conditions provided.) The challenge was inspired by the Greek story of Sisyphus who was condemned by Zeus to roll a boulder up a hill just to watch it roll back down for eternity in the depths of Hades (Greek Mythology's equivalent of Hell.) Having known people who have and first hand experienced the effects of mental health myself I think it's fair to say the experience is a fair symbolic comparison of the day in and out misery inflicted by those affected by poor mental health. Research into causes and treatments to this are taking place every single day but it needs the support of as many people as possible to enhance the capacity of help it's able to provide as well as raising public awareness of things such as symptoms and causes that people may have even been blind to like diet or sleeping cycles.  During the current state of the world with COVID-19 knocking about it is hard not to feel isolated, distant, fearful, and anxious. Rightfully so do we experience this but for many mental health will exasperate this experience and so it is now that I choose to take a stand and help do my bit for something far greater than myself in the hope of my actions aiding charity in reaching out and reconnecting those who are feeling lost... whilst making a fool of myself on some Welsh hillsides.  Any support you can show will be massively appreciated by not just myself and the team but the thousands of smiling faces mental health research can help bring across the world.  More information about Mental Health Research UK: Mental Health Research UK (MHRUK) is the first charity in the UK to have the sole objective of supporting research into the causes and cures of mental illness. Mental Health Research UK's sole purpose is to ensure people with mental illness have the best chance in life. Transforming lives, funding research into the causes of mental illness to make a long-term difference. image: Breacon Beacons from Corn Du
