At the end of October Craig Thomson and I are going to run, walk and crawl every step inside Murrayfield Stadium.
There's 7400 of them 😬
We are doing it to raise funds for the amazing, and very important charity, SAMH, the Scottish Association for Mental Health.
We all have mental health, but some of us suffer from poor mental health and at times find life tough. SAMH does amazing work to help sufferers of poor mental health. I have gone through waves of good and bad times, I have done for many years. I have paid for private therapy, I've been referred for therapy and I have self reffered for therapy, but many people struggle to know where to turn, so by doing this event we want to help raise awareness of the help that is available to EVERYONE.
I'm lucky that I have good physical health, this has been an invaluable tool to use to help when I have really struggled, hence the reason I do all sorts of daft events! So, I thought why not use that to help raise some funds!
7400 steps to climb up and down!! It is symbolic of the struggles with poor mental health; each day can feel like an up hill (stair!!) battle, but it really is about moving 1 step forward at a time. Eventually you'll be able to look back and see how far you have progressed 🙂
If you are able to sponsor, any amount is very much appreciated. Otherwise, please spend 5 minutes looking at the SAMH page, you might learn something new that you can use to help any friends or family that may be struggling.
Ps next time you climb stairs, count them then imagine 7400 of them! The wee 🐄 will be burning for days!! www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dale-roy2019 - 4 months ago
