400k’s for R U OK?

R U OK? Day has always been important to me, from hosting well being days with my best mate at my old work, to raising money through morning teas it is one day of the year I really focus on what I can do to help. This year I am going a little bigger. 

Between August 1st and September 9th (R U Ok Day 2021) I am committing to running 400 kilometres. (Approx. 10km per day), you can follow my journey through my donation page or on the app Strava. Which I will link in a few days. 

About 8 people take their own lives in Australia every day.

For every death, it’s estimated another 30 people will attempt suicide.

89% of people report knowing somebody who has made an attempt.

I want to help change these numbers. 

R U OK?’s vision is of a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide. 

Their mission is to inspire everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and support anyone struggling with life.

By inspiring people to take the time to ask, “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people who are struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

Thank you so much for your support, together we will make a difference.

The Link to donate is in my bio. 

Lots of love, 

Josh xx
