The idea for JustMove came about from a conversation between work colleagues in 2019. A challenge was set to run/walk 100km throughout the month of November whilst raising funds for charity. With what started off as just a group of work colleagues coming together to do this, we said we would set up a page on social media to try attract some attention and we also opened this up to the general public. A group of 30 came together to raise just over €2,000 in 2019.
The way this year has turned out, we have thought it was crucial to organise the challenge again given the fact that our mental health is being challenged on a daily basis and we are without access to the usual facilities/environments we would use to exercise/socialise.
We saw a huge surge of interest and people looking to take part in the challenge this year and with over 80 participants involved we have raised over €6,000 and counting with still plenty of time left for donations to come in.
We are delighted and proud to be raising vital funds on behalf of Suicide or Survive for the second year in a row as mental health effects each & every one of us especially in these challenging and uncertain times.
Suicide or Survive has offered a service to some of the JustMove participants when they needed assistance in the past which is another reason we are delighted to be giving something back to this amazing charity.
