To mark World Mental Health Day on October 10th, we ran a month-long agenda of activities to raise awareness, encourage conversation and shine a spotlight on our community who came together to support one another. Take a look at what our crew got up to.
We hosted our first ever +Pause mental health event in Central London. This was a 3-day pop-up well-being sanctuary where members of our community came together in a calm and supportive environment to relax, chat, listen, move, rest, and prioritise their mental health.RunTalkRun, Sanctuary Runners, Nichola Suitor, Solace House + Caroline McKenna hosted Walk+Talk sessions across 6 of our G+C Clubhouses and beyond on World Mental Health Day to allow our community to come together, have important conversations and support one another.
We shared a Guided Sleep Narration audiotrack recorded by the one and only, Niall Horan. With many struggling to sleep during these crazy times of the past 18 months, Niall was keen to help in any way possible and the reaction to his ‘bedtime story’ was phenomenal. You can listen to it here.
Watch how James Sutliff carved his own path in life through exercise, community and perseverance after his diagnosis with dystonia. Our first MLR video series is a must-watch and brings so much hope and inspiration to those out there who may be going through a tough time. Watch it here now.
As the monumental Marathon Mind journey nears its conclusion, we heard back from all the participants a month out from race day. A battle of physical endurance and most importantly, mental resilience. Click through to hear more from Phelim, Marion, Michelle and Danny.
