CALM Your MIND Bike Ride 2019
On May 12th 2019, Steve, Darren & Simon set off on a journey to cycle 1000 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
The reason behind this epic challenge is to raise money and awareness for us here at Mind in Somerset. Steve, Darren and Simon are particularly passionate about the support Mind in Somerset offer through their Somerset Suicide Bereavement support project.
This work is vitally important as, sadly, 79% of men that die between 18 and 40 years of age will do so from suicide. On average this is 84 men in the UK a week.
Steve, Darren & Simon would like to thank all friends, family and businesses that have shown them and their family support. One particular person they would like to thank is Michael Stewart who will be driving the support vehicle and providing much needed supplies along the way. Michael’s company has chosen Mind in Somerset as their charity for 2018/19 and they will be matching any money raised pound for pound.
