Speak Up CIC Marathon In a Month

Donation protected
Hi guys, I’m reaching out to our local community to see if we can bring people together during this tough time to raise some funds for our local mental health charity, Speak Up CIC.

These guys, do unbelievable work helping people through their mental health problems and saving lives.

Over the last few years, personally like others in this community, I have lost friends due to mental health reasons and I feel that there is a difference to be made and with a bit of help, raise some funds for this fantastic cause.

Seeing as the football season is on pause at the moment until the restrictions ease off, I felt that after seeing a change in a lot of people due to dry January, why not keep the healthiness going, create some healthy competition between the other teams and individuals, but at the same time raise some funds for these guys to continue their fantastic mission.

From the 1st February to the 28th February, I am organising a marathon in a month (26.2 miles/42.2 K) in which I am looking for support and join forces with the other teams and individuals already committed to the cause.

You have an entire month to complete the marathon individually and there will be tables created for this page and updated every day throughout the month, so everyone can check their progress.

Hopefully from seeing the efforts of others, we can influence as many people as possible to join us in this marathon, not only for the charitable reasons, but to motivate as many people as possible to get out their themselves and get fit and healthy.

We ask for people to record their results using a running app (Strava if possible) and to screen shot the results which include the date, time and distance and send into a WhatsApp group or even via message to this page, so then I can personally update the tables with everyone’s progress throughout the month and that way it can all be seen online on this page.

It has to be a screenshot with all those details on, to submit the score.

I’m personally setting a target of £1000 from my team Dolphin Kings United F.C. via sponsorship the players receive per mile they run.

Anything added on top by anyone who wishes to join us will be very much appreciated.

A big thankyou goes out to Camdens Arms F.C., TWS Cramptons F.C., Imperial Lounge F.C. and South Eastern Tavern F.C., who have already committed to helping us on our mission.

If anyone wishes to join us as an individual, company, football/rugby team, etc…

Please message me your details and I will add you to the list we already have.

Please feel free to share this, hopefully we can attract others to help us in this marathon and influence people to get out their and exercise, as a healthy mind is a happy mind!

And lastly if anyone is out there and feel they are alone; remember you are not!

Try talking about your feelings to a friend, family member, health professional or counsellor. You could also contact Speak Up CIC 01843 448384.

Speaking up can be life changing compared to keeping it in.

We have a week till its starts, so hopefully people can join us on our journey!

If you feel you can make a difference and get involved, please do!

Any donations can either be collected as an individual, team manager, etc… and sent over once completed or feel free to use the go-fund-me page which has been created.

Any help will be very much appreciated!
