Welsh 3 peaks cycle

On the 19th April 2019, 11 of us will be climbing the Welsh 3 peaks and cycling the 134 miles between them, aiming to do it in under 72 hours.


Why?

Everyone knows someone who is fighting against or has lost the battle to depression and we want to maintain and increase the awareness around this subject. 

·         Three quarters of suicide in the U.K are male

·         Suicide is the biggest killer of males under the age of 45

I have recently lost a friend, Max, to suicide and have seen the family’s fundraising page, who are in the process of raising funds to establish their own Foundation in his name. The Foundation will focus on awareness of mental health, additional counselling and support in schools and universities and, ultimately, the research as to why this is affecting our young men. 

We believe that there needs to be more awareness as to how depression can present itself, as the symptoms of depression are not always obvious to others - a smiling face can mask intense pain.

Thank you in advance for your kind donations, generosity and support,

Alex and the team.
